Windows of color catch the eye in the Finestre Sock. These socks stand out with their beautiful hand-dyed colorways and a bold geometric pattern.

Mosaic knitting creates textured “windows” using slipped stitches and one color per round. The socks are worked from the cuff down with a heel flap and gusset. The sole is worked in simple stripes while the mosaic pattern continues on the upper instep. The socks are finished with a grafted toe.

Stitch pattern is both written out and charted.
