Ruusujuuri socks are knitted toe up. Both the toe and the heel turn are worked in Eye of Partridge to match the thickness of the stranded colorwork parts of the sock. Should you prefer not to use any beads, they can be substituted with yet another contrast color.
This pattern is based on the very traditional motif of repeating diamonds. To those knitters who are familiar with my other sock designs: don’t bother searching - there are no small or hidden images in the design; it’s just a normal stranded sock.
