The ribbed sections on these socks are inspired by the shape of a pair of classic sneakers (I have a red pair, well I have several but I really like the red ones). You can choose to have empty eyelets or lace them with ribbon as on the left.

The ribbing also means the socks fit neatly to the calf and instep, as well as creating detail at the heel.

These socks are knitted top down and can be adjusted by changing needle size. Double pointed needles or a circular needle using the magic loop method can be used as preferred
Suitable of any standard sock yarn.
