These bright, and deceptively simple color-work socks are perfect for the anti-hero in your life. The thick stranding will keep your toes warm on the toughest of jobs and the stripe up the back tells everyone in the ‘verse just how cunning you are. An ideal project for knitters with sock and color-work experience. Sizes are listed in both men’s and women’s sizing. Instructions are given to work the heel in either stripes (shown in picture) or a solid color, depending on what you prefer.
