*Pushmi-Pullyu Socks Pattern -- digital download


Want to knit a pair fun pair of socks to show off a great variegated or self-striping yarn? Want a project that is fast and portable? Knit these great socks all one piece using 9” circular needles.

Start from the toe of your first sock, work foot to heel, work short-row heel, then leg and cuff. Knit a few rows of scrap yarn then work second cuff, leg, heel, foot and toe. Then split the socks and bind off 2 identical socks.

By working short-row heels in a contrasting color, there is no need for a gusset. Your striping or pooling will stay intact over the instep. You’ll love the construction of the socks, the look of your yarn and the customizable fit.

For those of you who, like me, have a high instep, I’ve included an alternate shaping for the heel to accommodate your foot shape.  And yes, you still get the benefit of keeping the stripes or pooling intact.
