Get ready to hit the trail in a summery pair of Switchback Socks. This knitting pattern is interesting because the socks are mirror images of each other with zigzags cascading down one side of each sock.
Switchback Socks Pattern
MaterialsThe socks are made with Skacel's CoBaSi by HiKoo yarn. It's a nice warm weather blend of cotton, bamboo, silk and nylon that's completely wool-free!
These socks are worked from the top down and have a band heel and a rounded wedge toe. The pattern includes a very basic stitch chart.
In addition to the pattern, I have created four companion tutorials to demonstrate some of the skills needed to knit the socks. Topics include - 5 Tips for Casting on in the Round, How to Knit a Band Heel, How to Pick Up Gusset Stitches and How Decrease Slant Effects the Look of a Sock Toe. The videos can be found in my Switchback Socks Playlist on YouTube.
