Lace up your summer kicks over these vintage sporty socks in four sizes (S/M/L/XL) and take off for biking, b-ball, or boardwalking. This fun to work, top-down pattern is shown here as a short ankle sock, but length is easily adjusted to taste (guidelines included). The two-color pattern can be worked with either shade as the foreground; use a pair of brightly contrasting colors or a neutral combination for a more subtle effect. In a slightly more substantial yarn, this is a quick knitting sock that offers super-comfy cushioning for days when feet are working hard.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
