Well, what can I say? Yet another one of my sock patterns was published this week: Slanted. The pattern is included in the latest Knit Picks collection Outrageous Socks, a stunning collection with 18 modern sock designs, all of them suitable for colourful yarn.
My pattern, Slanted, uses simple knit and purl stitches which create stripes that seem to spiral down the leg. The socks are knitted cuff down with a so-called hybrid Fleegle Heel, which is integrated into the leg and worked in rounds. The heel emerges neatly from the diagonal stripes and it also seems to wander into the right position. The toe is worked as a kind of star toe, which picks up the slant of the diagonal lines.
The pattern includes two sizes to fit approximately 19 ( 22.25) cm [7.5 (8.75)"] leg circumference. You can choose to work the stitch pattern from the charts or the written instructions.
The pattern Slanted is available as individual download or as part of the Outrageous Socks collection from the Knit Picks website, here.
