Moresque is a synonym for arabesque, rhythmic linear patterns of scrolling and interlacing foliage, tendrils, or plain lines. These socks have an intricate geometric patterning created by simple one stitch cables, joining and separating.
They make me think of Moorish tiles, wrought iron window grids, oriental carpets, or the sculptured stone arches of Alhambra.
This design is worked top down, with a patterned heel flap.
