Tessellation Socks

Designed by Anastasia Popava

These cozy socks are a thoughtful hybrid of Tunisian crochet and regular crochet. Working the body of the crochet sock in Tunisian crochet makes for a comfortable fit. And since it’s worked in spiral strips around, you don’t even need a Tunisian hook! The strips combine with the variegated yarn to create a subtle tiled pattern.
