This top-down sock in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL), based on our popular Strömming Cap design, features a lively textured cuff that segues into a subtle vertical “stripe” which travels down the leg and over the foot. Easy to work knit/purl motifs make this project a quick knitting, good traveler that is readily converted to toe-up construction.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
