Here’s a fun unisex sock in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) that knits up quickly and puts a busy colorway to good use. The playful textured squares follow the color trail as it spirals down the leg and over the foot, bending and squeezing the fabric as it goes, for an optical effect.
Sock may be knit at 8 sts/inch, using guidelines below (yardages may vary from the original).
Substituting needles and/or yarn may result in an overall variation in size.
