Lucy In the Sky
Lucy in the sky with... you guess it - diamonds.
This is a 2-color stranded colorwork sock utilizing a diamond lattice pattern. The diamonds shift between the main color and contrast color and then back again before the toe. The pattern is mimicked on the sole, and pinstriped gussets merge into a simple stripe that runs down the sides of the foot.
The cuff, heel flap and toe are knit using size 1 (2.25mm) needles while the colorwork portion calls for size 1.5 (2.5mm). Knit with a 5" leg and 9" foot, the designer used approximately 70g MC and 50g CC.
Picture yourself on a train in a station... knitting these socks. I just hope they don't give you kaleidoscope eyes.
