Dip in the Road Sock Knitting Pattern

On Sale
Added to cart
My favourite type of sock pattern: straightforward to knit, but with a fun design detail that takes them slightly beyond plain. This sock features subtly different lefts and rights, with an offset ridge-rib pattern.

It’s worked top-down, with a reinforced heel flap and turn, with a gusset for better fit. The design features my favourite no-graft toe closure, which works on all shapes of feet – and saves fuss. (Of course, if you prefer, work your usual toe.)

Instructions are written for your preferred needle configuration. Everything’s spelled out – if you’ve not worked a sock before, all the guidance you need is here!
