The Flying V formation gives just a touch of “special” to these otherwise plain top-down socks ~ a perfect solution for that “no fuss” sock wearer.

  • traditional slip-stitch heel
  • Stockinette foot
  • wide toe

A generous 6 sizes (teen - adult) are included in the pattern as well as links for the Estonian Cast-On -- our favourite cast on for a stretchy cuff, Grafting Sock Toes without Ears and other helpful techniques. Written instructions for Kitchener stitch are also included.
