This top-down sock in five sizes features a knit/purl motif which extends down the leg and over the top of the foot in a grid of tweedy squares. The pattern strikes a great balance between a subtle look and fun knitting that travels well. Sock is easily converted to toe-up construction.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
