From Pattern Description
“I’m forever drooling over pictures of knee-high socks that other knitters produce. They look beautiful and you feel much warmer when you wrap up your lower legs properly. But I have a hatred of my calves and much prefer hiding them under legwarmers than all that tightly shaped fair isle patternig. But legwarmers are kind of boring to knit. Plus they aren’t the most elegant of garments. As a solution, this pattern attempts a sort of sock and legwarmer in one’ a chicer take on those slouch socks of the 1980’s. It employs tiny cabling over slipped-stitch striping; a stitch pattern that is both easier to knit than Fair Isle and a lot stretchier. The vertical vine-like columns are flattering, whilst the mix of yarns warmly encases your ankles.”
