The coloring on this sock brings to mind a stained glass window, with the geometry evoking the windows used in homes by Frank Lloyd Wright. The first Frank Lloyd House I visited in person was Robie House in Hyde Park, Chicago, so I named these socks after that beautiful home.

There are many possibilities for colors for this sock. The tri-colored sock is shown with one main color (MC) and two contrasting colors (CC A and CC B). The other sock uses only a single variegated colorway for the sock, so you would use MC for all colors in the directions. Another option could be using only one CC, so you use one CC whenever the directions call for CC A or CC B. Feel free to mix it up and play with color!
