I absolutely love the unconventional construction that requires simple decreases and increases to shape the heel and toe. I also love how it showcases self-striping yarn. And, most importantly, I love how well they fit!

Now that I’ve completed this relatively simple pair of socks, I think I’ll challenge myself with a pair of socks that involves a slightly more difficult technique. Stay tuned!
