I love striped socks, but I always feel limited to just a plain vanilla pattern to show off the stripes. However, I am not really a vanilla girl, so these socks are part of a collection of patterns I am putting together to highlight the beautiful striped yarn out there. Of course, they can always be knit in whatever yarn you desire. These socks are knit from the toe up using a Turkish cast on and featuring a Fleegle heel.
