Mod Quad Socks
Short Description: For the past few years, I've been inspired and obsessed by the concept of modular squares, knit from the outside in. Until this pattern, I'd never found a practical way to use this motif on a sock. This ankle sock is knit from the toe up to the heel, leaving a 24 stitch gap across the top of the foot. Squares are then knit into that gap, and along the cuff area of the sock. The cuff is later finished with a simple rib, and an afterthought heel is picked up, worked, and grafted.
