This top down sock was a delight to knit due to the yummy softness of Shibui’s newest yarn, Staccato. The cuff began with the optional rib cast on using the Long Tail/Purl Cast On (see Purl Cast On Video) and was followed by the simple dancing squares. Pattern debuted as Mystery Sock #24 in May 2010.
The multi-colored version of this sock was knit with yarn traded with friends. The two colored version gives a totally new look to the design. The design features an Eye of Partridge Heel and the debut of Michelle’s Eye of Partridge Toe.
Just one stitch will cause your sock to “lean” to the left or the right. Make one of each and you have a pair of politically correct socks. This top down sock starts with a unique bobble row and spirals on down to an easy short row heel. Everyone votes for this sock!
Knit with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock and revealed in September, 2008.
