Inspired by optical illusions in which the placement of colors seems to bend straight lines, the stitch pattern used in these socks seems to tilt the squares from left to right.
The socks are knit from the cuff down. The stitch pattern combines small squares in Stockinette Stitch with squares in the lace pattern and the way the decreases and increases are worked pull the squares in the desired direction. The heel is worked with German Short Rows using double stitches.
