Hyperion Sock Pattern (Toe Up) by Jeny Staiman


Hyperion is a close relative of Polar Arc, a sock construction that is worked entirely in the round yet still has a lovingly contoured fit even for high arches.

Hyperion is not worked with striping yarn, although its design is inspired by it. This pattern uses a color map system that anchors the striping design at the heel and instep. This stripe placement on this unique sock construction evokes a feeling of concentric circles, so Jeny named the pattern after one of Saturn’s moons.

The pictured pair of socks is made with a gradient sock set (two matching 50g skeins). Each sock starts at the toe using both ends of the ball, and as you work your way up the leg the colors slowly converge. Jeny added extra height to the cuff on this pair to use up more of the gradient. This is an easy modification to make on the fly.
