Whether underfoot or holding up the roof of a cathedral, arches keep things supported. In Roman architecture, the keystone locks the arch together and holds everything up. This subtly-supportive sock design conforms to the foot with easy 3x1 ribbing on top and a bit of shaping underfoot. It’s all uncomplicated enough to let even complex colorways sing!

Size Small (60 sts): 7.5” (19cm) foot circumference: 250 yards (each additional 1”/2.5cm of cuff length would require approx. 10 additional yards per pair).

Size Medium (68 sts): 8.5” (21.5cm) foot circumference: 300 yards (each additional 1”/2.5cm of cuff length would require approx. 11 additional yards per pair).

Size Large (76 sts): 9.5” (24cm) foot circumference: 350 yards (each additional 1”/2.5cm of cuff length would require approx. 12 additional yards per pair).

This pattern was originally released in September 2014 as an exclusive to the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin’ Sock Club.
