Lace up your summer kicks over these vintage sporty socks in four sizes (S/M/L/XL) and take off for biking, b-ball, or boardwalking. This fun to work, top-down pattern is shown here as a short ankle sock, but length is easily adjusted to taste (guidelines included). The two-color pattern can be worked with either shade as the foreground; use a pair of brightly contrasting colors or a neutral combination for a more subtle effect. In a slightly more substantial yarn, this is a quick knitting sock that offers super-comfy cushioning for days when feet are working hard.

Shown here in color A Ginny Sport, color Texas (cream) and color B Yarn Hollow Umpqua, color Faded High Tops (red)

Matching Motif: Bensonhurst. This pattern can also be found as part of the Pairings 2016 Designer eBook Collection.
