Xanthophyll \ˈzan(t)-thə-ˌfil\ noun

  • a yellow pigment that colors autumn leaves

I’ve never understood why people think of yellow as a spring color. It’s always reminded me far more of autumn. Between the rich yellow and the spiky stitch pattern, these socks are perfect for fall.

This pattern is for a top down sock with a heel flap. The socks feature two different slipped stitch patterns. The slipped stitches beautifully highlight the color changes in variegated sock yarns. The ribbing helps create a marvelously stretchy sock that will easily fit a variety of different feet. The pattern is suitable for men or women and is shown on a man’s foot.
