Stripes’n’flowers sock pattern
The design is inspired by the Finnish fashion brand Marimekko. The pattern is available on my Ravelry store.
This pair of socks is knitted cuff down and the pattern comes with german short row heel. The pattern is written for magic loop method, but can be adjusted for dpn’s.
The Ladderback Jacquard technique is used in the colorwork section and the fabric is thus stretchier than stranded colorwork would produce. If you knit stranded colorwork you might need more stitches or bigger needles for that specific section.
