Clocks on Socks... HELP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I was intrigued by something in Manton's book. I am a huge sock fan, and he mentions a classic pattern for socks called the "clock" pattern. I have never been able to find a pair, and no one seems to know what the heck I am talking about.

Do any of you have a pic of a pair of socks with this pattern? It torques me off that I am such a sock guy but don't know what this looks like...

THANKS!

Sock clocks are the small patterns that run up the length of the hose:

Thank you brother!

Question:

Do the clocks have to be that diamond shape, or can they be any pattern that goes up the side of the hose?

Clocking is the general term for the patterns on the hose.

Thanks for the info. Now I know what the rappers are talking about when they say someone is clocking.
