Abstract (en)

The sock is made so that stitches (10) of increased thickness are produced at predetermined points on its sole (8) to stimulate the sole of the wearer's foot. The thickened stitches are produced by picking up the stitches of between 3 and 12 successive rows of knitting and are positioned so that they lie in alternating rows across the foot. They can be made from the same yarn as the rest of the sock or can incorporate a special yarn, especially of a metal and plastic fibre able to retain permanent magnetic charges.
