The sock *Xara* has a playful, interwoven Matrix style pattern - an easy-to-knit slip stitch cable technique - at the leg. The design requires 2 different solid coloured sockyarns.
Even though the pattern looks impressive, it is rather easy to knit: In each round, only one colour is used. The colour changes after each round. The cables/twists consist of two stitches only and can be easily worked without a cable needle.
Instructions for heel and toe are not included; these are worked according to your preference.
The pattern is charted.
