A stranded sock featuring two slightly different diamond patterns combined for an interesting geometric effect. A checkerboard pattern creates a cushioned sole and a slipped-stitch heel looks tidy and is simple to work.
Using two solid colors, this pattern is great for showcasing team colors, House colors or your favorite colors. Substitute a variegated yarn for one color for a unique effect.
Sock is worked from the toe-up, and the pattern is written for working on 2 circular needles.
