Here’s a top-down unisex sock in four sizes S(M, L, XL) that knits up quickly and puts a busy colorway to good use. The deep Garter Rib cuff and matching heel provide textural contrast for an allover openwork pattern of tilting checks extending down the leg and over the top of the foot.
Substituting needles and/or yarn may result in an overall variation in size.
