After knitting My Fletching, I decided to use the leftover yarn to make a pair of matching socks. The simple colorwork motif works very well for socks because it is very easy to knit and has very short floats. The short floats help keep the leg portion of the sock a bit more flexible so you have a more comfortable fit.

The Fletching Socks would be perfect for your first socks and your first colorwork project. With six sizes available, you can knit a pair for the anyone in your family.

The Fletching Socks are knit from the cuff down with a heel flap and gusset construction.
