Longing for a haven from the frenetic pace of life is the inspiration behind these cosy socks.
Knit in the round and cuff down, these socks begin with a twisted rib cuff that balances the linear appearance of the rib-based texture, before gently developing into the triangular shape on the instep.
They are designed using the same stitch pattern as:
