Swirl Socks

These socks are a quick and satisfying toe-up knit. The lines flow into one another, reminiscent of swirls of water or ripples on a field of snow on a winter morning.

This pattern contains 2 separate sets of instructions. One for a short row heel and one for a heel flap, using Cat Bordhi’s Riverbed Heel Architecture from her book New Pathways for Sock Knitters, Book One. Used by permission from Cat Bordhi.

The 16 row pattern repeat includes a “rest” row of knit sts on every even numbered row, making this a very quick knit.

Now there's a Swirl Hat, too! And of course the Interrupted Swirl Mitts complete the ensemble just perfectly.
