Inspired by the book ‘The Hunger Games’ and the main character’s weapon of choice in the arena, these socks are reminiscent of an arrow. The cuff is shaped with short-rows and combined with the twisted stitches on the leg it forms the fletching; the twisted stiches on the instep form the arrowhead. Take a good aim!
