This top-down unisex sock in four sizes features a knit/purl motif which is enhanced by using a yarn that has a bit of sheen. Split diamonds shimmer down the leg and over the top of the foot to show off the contrast of the knits and purls in this simple stitch pattern.
Sock is easily converted to toe-up construction, as the pattern is vertically reversible and may be resized by using different yarn weights or needles.
