A project to bring to knit group gatherings should be portable, and the pattern should be easy to memorize so that one doesn’t lose track while chatting. These socks meet those criteria perfectly. The main pattern is a knit-and-purl ribbing, which travels to the side every couple of rounds. The interesting detail is the heel because the heel flap and gusset are integrated into the leg and are worked in the round.

The socks are worked in the round from the cuff down. They are mirror images of each other with the stripes and the heel flap slanting in different directions with individual instructions for each sock.

Knitters can choose to work the textured pattern from chart or written instructions.
