This pattern is a playful experiment in color theory. The trio of coordinating "mismatched" socks is created by rearranging the order of three contrasting colors when you knit each sock.
The socks feature a boxy, mosaic (slipped stitch) design. If you are new to mosaic colorwork, it is basically like knitting stripes with a few strategically placed slipped stitches. You are only working with one color of yarn at a time. The mosaic motif is charted.
The socks are knit from the toe up with a star toe and a short row heel.
This pattern is written in needle neutral terms and can be worked on dpns or circular needles with your favorite small circumference circular knitting method.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
