Ossa

Swirls of colour dance and play around Ossa; the perfect blank canvas for using up sock scraps and celebrating colour. This sock is knitted from the top down and features an afterthought heel. The heel and toe are shaped using swirl decreases, which often look a little unusual but fit beautifully.
