One of my favorite things about tiramisu is all the layers—the sponge cake, the mascarpone, the chocolate. Those stripes look like striations of delicious sediment.

The textured stripes in this socks reminded me of the stripes in one of my favorite desserts. I knew what I had to name them. They’ve got lots of simple texture and an easy short-row heel that uses wrapless turns. You’ll be able to take these socks anywhere and work on them just about any time.
