Roman Sandal Socks
This sock pattern is one of 28 in my ebook, Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters. My Personal Footprint method is fun and easy, and captivates even seasoned sock knitters with its innovative approach and ease of fitting any foot. It is ideal for normal feet as well as feet with unusually high or low insteps, and heels of all sizes and shapes.
These socks are reminiscent of the knee-high sandals popular in the sixties and have been incubating in my mind for years. I was given the yarn while teaching at Shall We Knit in New Hamburg, Ontario, and the sock came to life 40,000 feet above the Rockies on my way home.
