Traverse socks are perfect for: a brisk tromp in the woods; a stroll through the pumpkin patch; a cozy evening on the couch. The stranded portions at the cuff and toe keep your foot extra toasty while 2x2 ribbing hugs the foot and leg for a perfect fit.

These socks are knit from the top-down in the round. They feature an afterthought heel, snazzy decreases on the back of the calf, and classic patterning.
