A symphony of cables, lace, and wale stitches make up this delicate pair of socks inspired by ornamental gables and trusses. Decorating the ankle are pillars of chevron lace — flanked by serpentine wale stitches and mirrored cables — that continue to the top of the foot while branching out at the back of the ankle to accommodate a slipped-stitch heel flap. A short row heel turn ensures comfortable fit; double decreases shape the gusset for functional grace; and a round toe completes the prim picture. Worked in worsted-spun Peerie, Hazelfern is a luxurious treat to wear when lounging at home, but is also strong and durable for afternoon strolls.
