It’s no secret that we are proud of our corn here in the Midwest. Farmers cut mazes into fields for daring visitors to meander through. Some farmers follow a pattern plotted on a grid; others use sophisticated GPS technology to cut the paths. Regardless of the method, the result is a puzzling network of trails that eventually lead to the finish. While these Endless Maze Socks are far less confusing than a corn maze, they are just as much fun. Better yet, they can be enjoyed year-round.

A tessellated zigzag of knits and purls wanders down the leg until you find your way to the slip-stitch heel. The endless maze continues down the top of the foot until you reach the satisfying finish—the toe. These socks look classic and refined in a solid or semi-solid yarn. However, the maze stitch can hold its own in a variegated yarn you’ve struggled to match with a sock pattern. Women and men alike can blaze their own trails in these gender-neutral Endless Maze Socks.
