The combination of the painted yarn and stitch patterns in this sock is reminiscent of shadow, moss, and lichen-dappled bark. These woodsy socks are built to last. The slip-stitch patterns in the toe, under the ball of the foot, and in the heel provide durability and extra cushioning. More slip-stitch patterning on and under the instep provides interest and a good fit. The cuff is a melange of staggered and slipped, elongated stitches within a rib that looks much more complicated than it is to knit. It provides both spectacular elasticity and comfort if worn with boots. Or wear them with sandals and shorts to show them off.

Foot and leg length adjustable to fit.
