Oak Leaves and Acorns Socks with Pin Stripes
These socks are inspired by the fall colors of leaves in a late British autumn. They are knitted from the top down with a two-color ribbed cuff, and the simple print motifs and acorn outlines are worked against a variegated background. The heel is a traditional heel flap and gusset but knitted in a tailored pin-stripe
with a matching pin-stripe mitten-top toe.
