Shadow Fade Socks
$4.99 USD on Knit Picks
Striping two gradient sets against each other, lightening in opposite directions, makes for a very rewarding and cheerful knit. Shifting colors do all the work in these dazzling but simple socks—no fancy footwork required.
In this sock pattern, a pair of helix spirals wind themselves around the sock without ever crossing one another’s paths. Helix knitting is a jogless method of working single round stripes in the round. Each stripe of colour is essentially a separate spiral, like mashing two slinky toys together.
