Revisit your project memories from the past year and bust stash with these scrappy marled socks! Two strands travel together, splitting periodically to make lovely 2-color brioche. Choose your favorite construction - both toe-up and cuff-down instructions are provided for your convenience!
This sock is knit holding two strands of fingering weight yarn together for a marled effect. Around the arch of the foot and in 2 spots on the leg, the strands are held separately to work sections of 2-color brioche. Use two contrasting yarns, or make a magic yarn ball out of scraps! Instructions are included for both toe-up and cuff-down construction, with a short-row heel and optional mini-gusset.
A low-vision version of the pattern is also available. This version is written in 24 point sans serif font (Arial) in all black text. It has no italics. All of the directions are fully written out.
