Mirror, Mirror

At long last, I've formatted the pattern for the colorwork socks I knit in the spring. And here it is:

Difficulty: Intermediate

To fit an average woman’s foot

Finished Measurements:
Circumference: 8 inches (unstretched)
Length: adjustable

Main Color (MC): about 300 yards fingering weight yarn
Contrast Color (CC) about 100 yards fingering weight yarn
Sample knit from 2 colorways of Schaefer Yarn Heather (55% superwash merino, 30% silk, 15% nylon, 4 oz [113 g] / 400 yds [365 m])
Set of US size 1 [2.25 mm] double pointed needles
Tapestry needle

Note: You can make two pair of socks from two skeins of Heather by reversing MC and CC in the second pair.

Gauge: 36 sts/48 rows: 4 inches in stst

Price: $4.00

(I'm calling them Mirror Socks because the second half of the chart is a mirror image of the first.)
