Avocado toast is not going anywhere, and we celebrate it with the Avo Toast Socks, which we all will promptly knit at our next brunch. These socks are lively, fun, and colorful—and they’re making us hungry. These socks are worked in the round from the cuff down with a peasant heel, and the variegated contrast color makes the colorwork minimal and easy.
