These boot-height men’s socks are fun and fast to knit. I wanted a subtle pattern that would make them more interesting than stockinette, but still plain enough that no man would hesitate to wear them. The moss diamond pattern is simple to knit, but hard to put down – I had to finish “just one more” diamond… and “just one more”!
