Slip stitch designs are often used to break up undesirable pooling in variegated yarns. These Slippery Slope Socks draw on elements of both techniques to create solid lines in different colors that move over a striped ground to form a geometric yet sinuous design.

Finished Size 6¼ (7)“ foot circumference and 9¼ (9¾)” long from back of heel to tip of toe; foot length is adjustable. Socks shown measure 7”.
