These colors sing to me of peaceful warmth, with the stitch pattern evoking sunset through slanted window blinds or a glowing hearth through sleepy eyelashes.

Mirroring the pattern from side to side makes the louvers merge into points at front and back. The direction of those points at center front delightfully changes, all by itself, from forward on the toe to straight over the foot, then upward on the leg.
