This top down, heel flap sock looks woven, but no, it’s knit! Clever use of the slip stitch leaves ‘bars’ across the knit stitches. This highlights the color changes beautifully. It’s a unisex look, great for any colorway.
Sample knit with 60sts around leg & 56sts around foot.
Shown in “Tristan”, hand dyed by Lorna’s Laces.
