So… I had two different single balls of sock yarn and couldn’t find a striped sock pattern that suited me, so I came up with my own with the help of some of the technical information from Cookie.a’s brilliant book Sock Innovation (to be particular the tables of numbers needed for heel turning). I made these a while ago but hadn’t got around to writing up the pattern. Hope it’s clear, do get in touch if anything doesn’t make sense.

This pattern would work well with any two contrasting colours of sock yarn or as a means of using up yarn left over from other socks. It would also be possible to experiment with different widths of stripes.
