This sock pattern utilizes the woven ladder stitch which showcases floats on the right side of the knitted fabric. This technique minimizes the pooling common with handpainted or heavily variegated yarns while taking advantage of their lovely color gradations. The pattern includes detailed instructions and stitch charts. These socks are knit from the top down.
