This top-down, unisex sock in three sizes (S/M/L) features the deep ribbing and horizontal knit/purl motifs of a classic gansey sweater. With a flap heel to cushion and protect at the back, a foot-hugging rib pattern extends down the leg and over the top of the foot to complete the design. Simple-to-work motifs make it an entertainiing traveller to tuck in a bag during summer adventures and enjoy all over again for outdoor activities when fall arrives.
