The deliciously subtle texture of this top-down sock is the perfect background to a pair of twisted cables running along each side of the leg. Worked in a natural colorway, they have a wonderful vintage “grandpa-ness” that makes them feel even cozier on one’s toes. With six sizes to choose from (XS/S/M/L/XL/XXL), these could be a father’s day (or mother’s day!) gift that the whole family will covet.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.Suggested Yarns:
