The sparkle of metallic thread and shiny beads in Glitz and Beads Socks is sure to make your feet happy and feel like dancing.

The beaded pattern echos the rhythmic sound waves of pulsing music to which we can imagine ourselves tapping in musical cadence.

And there are plenty of features in these socks to make your feet and knitting needles sing!

  • Note the nice attention to design details at cuff, ankle and instep where the ribbing flows into and out of the wavelike beaded pattern.

  • “Keyboard” ribbing at cuff and ankle provides a firm, yet flexible fit.

  • The heel flap flows the ankle ribbing in a slipped stitch design that gives extra cushion and durability.

  • Left and right swirl toes fit well on your feet and are easy to make, too (no grafting!).
