Through the clever use of twist stitches, these toe-up socks give the appearance of a bias rib when in reality they are neither biased nor ribbed. A delicate row of eyelets runs up the front and back of the socks, and a unique stretchy picot ribbed bindoff finishes the pair off in style.

Women’s Small (8 inch ankle), Medium (10 inch ankle) and Large (12 inch ankle).
