Continuing in the vein of not just boring socks for dudes, Diamond Dude Socks are just very slightly more fancy. Still basic, still stretchy, and still manly; but, like all of the other Boring Dude socks, they’re not just for boring dudes. Three sizes, so you can knit them for just about anyone. The pattern lends itself to almost any type of colorway for when your dude doesn’t want completely boring socks, or even when they’re not for a dude at all.
