Product details

It is said that many of the stitches used in Aran knitting are lucky symbols for the wearer. For instance, diamonds represent wealth and success, while cables are for strength, safety, and luck. This pattern incorporates such traditional designs into extra-cosy hiking socks loaded with good omens for the new year. Knit in worsted weight at a tight gauge, they are a great quick knit for men or women.

The socks are knit from the top down with a ribbing pattern at the top, back of calf, and ankle, and a cable / diamond pattern at the shin. The heel is the V-heel, the designer’s favorite, and is combined with an extra-squishy stitch pattern on the flap for maximum comfort. Because these are working socks, the foot and toe are in Stockinette Stitch.
