Squares & Stripes Garden Maze Socks
This sock design is worked from the top of the cuff down to the toe. It is
worked in two colors with the cuff worked in an unusual garter stitch
technique that I call garden maze garter stitch. Models shown in the
photos are the childís size and womenís medium size. To adjust the cuff
height to match the sock size, the childís size has two sets of squares
and stripes on the cuff, the womenís sizes have 3 sets, and the menís
sizes have 4 sets. You may notice in the photos that the thickness of the
garter stitch cuff looks larger around than the sock foot, but it fits
well. The socks can be made as either identical twins (main color and
contrast color are the same on both socks) or as fraternal twins (use the
main color of the first sock as the contrast color of the second sock).
Childís (for a child about 5-6 years old), womanís small, womanís
medium, womanís large, manís small, manís medium, and manís large. Sizes
are shown for the childís size with the other sizes shown in parentheses.
Foot length for each size is approximately 7.25 (8.25, 9.25, 10, 10.25,
11, 11.5) inches or 18.5 (21, 23.5, 25.4, 26, 29.2) cm.
Definitely advanced or adventurous intermediate.
