These socks were designed for Sock Madness 11. They are challenging and maybe a bit fussy, but not hard.

The foot is designed to be reminiscent of the clog style strap sandals that we often see in the summer months, while the leg is designed to be argyle, though not traditionally worked.

The heel is an uncommon one, worked with a small short row section, a saddle strap that goes around the ankle and then a strong/fleegle style heel closure.

You may notice there is a a gusset. Actually, the gusset is fully adjustable giving knitters a total of 3 possible heights to the heel.

You may also have noticed that I have 2 full skeins listed in the requirements for the socks. You will use less of the contrast color and you can also work these as fraternal twins, switching the 2 for the second sock. They will be VERY APPARENTLY fraternal if you choose to work them that way.
