Polar Arc Sock Pattern (Cuff Down) by Jeny Staiman


Polar Arc is engineered specifically for gradient and self striping yarns. The structure exploits the properties of fabric worked on the bias and reinforced heel stitch to create a heel without a heel turn. Unlike with other sock patterns, you don’t get a break in hue or pattern across the instep because he heel is completely integrated with the body of the sock.

The denim stripe sock is worked top down. The toe-up pattern used for the Melon stripe is sold separately. Having both versions allows you to pick your favorite sock knitting method to create virtually identical socks whichever direction you go!

This pattern is structurally identical to the toe-up version with one small exception: at the very end of the arch, just before the toe, this pattern includes an additional 3(3, 5, 7) rounds of shaping. If a precise match with toe up is desired, simply skip these rounds and go directly to working the toe.

Pattern delivered as a PDF available immediately after purchase, for you to download, save and print at home.
