The eleventh pattern in our Sock of the Month “National Parks Series”!

Worked from the toe up, the Colorado River Socks have a flowing river represented with slip stitches and a cable pattern running up the center on both the front and back. This is framed on each side with a lace chevron stitch design that mimics the canyon’s natural landscape. The socks also feature a full gusset and a robust slip stitch heel. Visions of the glorious canyon and the river that runs through it will greet you each time you wear the Colorado River Socks!
