Throughout history, spies and counter-spies have made complex locks with equally complex keys to try to keep things safe. These socks use four simple but related colorwork motifs as keys; along the way you’ll also unlock the “forethought” heel. This heel works on the “afterthought” principle, but works the heel first and then the foot.
