The third pattern in our Sock of the Month “World Traveler Series”!

The delicate columns and gothic tracery found in the England’s Canterbury Cathedral are the inspiration behind these exquisite socks! Knit from the top down starting with a twisted rib, the series of cables are mirrored front and back. Columns run down the back of the leg and top of the foot. The toe has another series of tracery like cables that flow gracefully to a point. A full gusset and ribbed heel flap give a snug, comfortable fit.
