Here it is, the sock pattern designed by Janita Meriläinen. This pattern is knitted with Bis-Sock Autorayante (Self-Striping) and Semi-Solid.
"X marks the spot” is a hidden treasure map. With this unique and easy-to-follow stitch pattern you will create gorgeous socks you will treasure. Knit them in jewel tones and knit several pairs, so your sock drawer becomes a treasure trove!
These socks are constructed as top down socks with a German short row heel. The colour combination ideas are endless and suitable for using up self-striping sock yarn, combined with a single contrasting color." - Janita Meriläinen
In addition to the pattern, you need the following materials to knit the X Mark The Spot pattern:
Gauge : 31 sts x 46 rnds = 10 cm Swatch should be worked in the round and measured after blocking.
Final Measurements : Notice that the socks stretches and comes loose after blocking and the first times used. Unfinished work should feel a bit "tight" so that the sock would still fit nicely the foot after you have finished your work by wet blocking.
