The Williamsburg Socks are the ultimate cozy sock. The simple design is composed of only knits and purls that are combined in such a way to make the sock ultra squishy and comfortable, with lots of stretch recovery. The front features an angled, plaid-like design and is combined with a beaded rib on the back–one of my favorite stitch patterns! It was completely inspired by the beautiful John Arbon Textiles Harvest Hues yarn, but the finished socks reminded me of the understated, unisex, hip style of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This sock is an excellent wardrobe-staple knit that will be one of those go-to pairs all winter.

John Arbon Textiles has generously offered knitters a discount to celebrate the pattern. Use the code WILLIAMSBURGLOVE on their website at check out for 10% off until December 1.
