Throw caution to the wind and make a pair of these fun socks!
I wanted to see what would happen when I did a contrasting heel color when I was working up a pair of socks using my favorite sock recipe, and I was pleasantly surprised when it made a bright upside-down triangle right at the back of the heel. It looked like a caution sign!
I suggest using a mini skein of neon yarn in any color for the contrasting toe-heel-cuff areas, and use a main color as loud or as subdued as you like!
The pattern has been recently updated with instructions for a larger calf opening as well!
