Lions bask in the shade of acacia trees on the unusual border of these ankle-length socks, knit from the top down with a hemmed cuff, a heel flap, and asymmetrical (anatomical) toes.

Yarn: 210 yards fingering weight sock yarn, white; 10 yards fingering weight sock yarn, black

Needles and notions: Set of 5 dpn, Size 1 or size needed to obtain guage.

Rounds 17 through 24: Join black and work from chart in stockinette stitch, beginning at the top left corner. Note that blue in the chart represents white, and white represents black. Since the eight-row pattern repeats over nine stitches, and there are a multiple of nine stitches on each needle, the end of each needle can be checked as a quick confirm3r that you haven't missed a stitch.
