With a shimmery texture that brings twinkling stars to earth, this sock in five sizes (XS/S/M/ L/XL) takes full advantage of a subtly shifting colorway or a solid that has some sheen. With a squishy, stretchy textured rib down the leg and over the foot, this design offers a comfortable, forgiving fit from top to toe. Worked top-down, the instructions are written for four needles, but are easily adapted to other methods or reversed to work toe-up (toe-up instuctions not included).
