This unisex sock pattern is a great way to use up multicoloured sock yarn. The diagonally travelling stitches form a simple geometric diamond pattern that stands out and does not get lost in the colour variations, and breaks up the horizontal striping of the yarn. No cabling or cable needle is used. The pattern features a band that is shaped, growing into the diamonds. The charted pattern was written for a teenage boy, but the foot length can be easily adjusted. This is an easy knit that only requires the chart to establish the pattern.
