From Pattern Introduction: It seems earthy, practical socks are always designed with men in mind - as if women never herded sheep or worked in the fields or went on a hike! These socks, adapted from a pair from the Shetland Island of Foula, are women’s socks. They will make good boot or Birkenstock socks. Their design … reflects the use of natural colored wool in the welt ribbing, the heel, and the toe. The heel is reinforced with slipped stitches and is shaped with a Round Heel. A Star Toe completes the foot.
