Vice Versa Socks

Though they begin in a familiar way, these are not your typical toe-up socks. The feet are worked on the bias; then short-row wedges and a heel flip the bias to the opposite direction for the leg. Self-striping and variegated yarns work very well to showcase the unusual construction in this pattern.
