The Old Sole House socks are a cozy DK weight, relaxed fit house / slipper sock. Knit cuff-down, these socks begin with a herringbone cuff and transition to two-color stranded colorwork for the ankle. A contrast heel & toe add a bit more interest to the foot.

I chose to use speckled colorways rather than all solids, to create an old & loved - vintage vibe.

For additional fun, finish off your socks with mini poms!
