The colors in handpainted yarns tend to pool, which is not always loved by knitters. This simple but effective stitch pattern will add spots of color from the row below into the middle of a long stretch of a single colour, tricking the eye into seeing a fancy stitch pattern instead of clumps of color. This sock is worked from the cuff down, with a flap and gusset heel. The optional split toe will add interest for an experienced knitter, while a beginner can chose the simpler traditional toe. This pattern was written to coordinate with the Chicanery Mitts by Angela Myers.
Directions are given for either fingering or sport weight yarn.
This is the June pattern for the Sock Yarnista club, and was available for purchase on their site until September 2013. It is now available for purchase exclusively from the designer.
