These sturdy toe-up hiking socks have it where it counts. Different colorwork and knitting techniques add padding, structure and support where it’s needed for all day comfort. The ribbing detail along the foot adds a comfortable arch support. The Hiking Socks feature a simple enough pattern to allow you to concentrate on new techniques such as a toe-up construction, a combination heel, short rows, as well as using colorwork for added structure. The pattern also includes tips on how to modify the socks for a more custom fit.
