Fletching is a delightful pair of socks adorned with a centre panel of arrow-like lace, which splits off to either side of the ankle. The pattern works well in variegated yarn, but would be equally lovely in a solid or semi-solid.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace, as well as directions for a short-row heel.

The pair is written to fit a woman’s medium/US 8, but the foot and leg lengths are adaptable.
