Bark Cloth Socks (Cuff Down)

Knit the traditions of two islands.
The intricate geometric motifs of the Bark Cloth socks pattern will whisk you away to Polynesia. Employing conventional stranded knitting techniques, the socks are knit cuff down using an eye of partridge heel flap. The geometric patterns adapted from traditional Polynesian tapa (bark cloth) continue onto the toe.

The pattern instructions are clear and easy to work with, taking all the stress out of knitting colorwork socks. The pattern features detailed written instructions and complete charts for medium and large size socks.

Ribbing, heel, and toe are worked on smaller needles. Adjust needle size as necessary to obtain proper gauge.
