To fit a woman's foot using fingering/sock weight yarn. I've used a long 18 stich repeat especially to showcase self-patterning or self-striping yarn.

If you knit this pattern, I would love you to send me a link to a pic of your finished socks!

Yarn choice tips: this pattern is especially written to showcase the patterns in self-patterning yarns. Self-striping yarns are also a good choice. Variegated (multi-color) yarns not recommended.
