Description
The designer has used a simple slip-stitch rib worked in the round and ingenious calf shaping to create these uptown abbreviated knee socks/leg warmers. The instep cover and foot strap, worked on straight needles and edged with a contrasting color, will help keep your feet warm, and twisted-yarn tassels sewn onto the sides provide a bit of flair.
