Pythagoras’ new socks are ready. The pattern has been published 😀

pythago's socks 2-

I first made this pair with two greys from Wolmeise Twin.

But then, I wanted to change some small details to the pattern and make a pair with the leftover yarn from pythagoras’ tee: some matching socks …

wip Pyth socks

Pythagoras’ socks are worked from the cuff down with a short row heel and a heel gusset.

Special, cleverly placed increases following the colorwork pattern are worked in the heel gusset.

They disappear in the all over patterning and are ´almost’ invisible.

The basic sock pattern is written out; the colorwork stitch pattern is charted only.

If you can’t reach gauge with the smaller needle and your color work is a bit tight, it is a good idea to go up a needle size.
