The Osceola Mountain Socks are made from the toe up and feature a short row heel. The twisted stitch pattern gives these socks a cabled look without the need for a cable needle. Throw these socks on for your first nature walk in the White Mountains after the spring thaw. If there are no mountains around, show them off with a pair of boots and a spring dress or shorts (these socks are unisex!).

These socks were designed for the 2016 Lakeside Fiber Retreat, an annual retreat held at Camp Tohkomeupog in New Hampshire.
