Djinni in Poseidon and Silver Fox

Octopodes

By Jennifer Raymond

As described by the designer: 'Octopodes are a pair socks with stranded colorwork on the foot, and helix knitting to stripe the ankle. All throughout, a pair of stripes shoot up the sides of the socks from toe to top, creating a strong visual line. When planning these socks I had some specific requirements: stranded, for warmth, with an afterthought heel as I always wear my heels out, and afterthought heels are easier to replace since stranded knitting is a pain to darn in pattern. However, I knew I wanted to carry the two colors of yarn into the ankle, but at the same time I didn’t want the ankle in stranded knitting, as it would be too difficult to fit my heels into the socks. Since I have a fondness for helix striping combined with slip stitches, the ankle is as you see. Design uses approximately 113, 133, 156, 184, 221 yds of each color.'
