The Refracted Socks are my first ever sock pattern! I was having a lot of fun playing with slipped stitches and thought it would be fun to make myself another pair of socks, and so they were born. The slipped stitch pattern wraps around the leg and the top of the foot, extending down onto the heel flap. They are knit top down with a heel flap and gusset and grafted at the toe. The pattern is graded for three sizes. The slipped stitch pattern is easy to memorize and quite enjoyable to knit. Pattern includes a chart for the slipped stitch pattern and detailed instructions to special stitches and techniques used.
