South Paw

Inspired by my fur-babies (2 dogs and 1 cat), SouthPaw is a top-down sock featuring a meandering pawprint pattern that is mirrored on the left and right sock.

The easy to memorize lace design uses yarnovers and decreases. The sock features a heel flap and gusset with traditional French heel and a rounded toe that is Kitchener stitched at the end.

The pattern is needle-neutral, so you can knit it with your needle of choice in your preferred style. SouthPaw features both written and charted instructions, and the pattern is easily reversible for knitters who prefer to knit socks toe-up. Instructions are included for narrow,
medium, wide and extra wide widths. Foot length is customizable.
