Warm, soft & stretchy toe-up socks feature a DNA double helix cable on the front and back, and a travelling twisted vine with leaf buds on each side. These would make a great gift for scientists or biology students!

A heel gusset creates the same arch ease that you get with top-down socks. Very comfortable.

This is a narrower sock – 8” (20.25cm) around – but we’ve included instructions on how to increase for a larger leg circumference.

Not ideal for beginner sock knitters, as it is assumed that you already know how to work the basic elements of a toe-up sock (such as a closed toe CO, and all the basic stitches).
