Strie Socks, Top Down
Strie means “stripe,” “groove,” or “gore” in French, so it seems like the perfect name for these very simple, garter-stitch-ribbed socks with French heels and wedge toes. This version is worked from the top down.
Simple stitch pattern shows off your knitting mojo without driving you nuts.
Top-down construction makes the work until you reach the heel flap fairly straightforward - great for vacation or distracted knitting.
