Vice Versa Socks

Though they begin in a familiar way, these are not your typical toe-up socks. The feet are worked on the bias; then short-row wedges and a heel flip the bias to the opposite direction for the leg. Self-striping and variegated yarns work very well to showcase the unusual construction in this pattern.

  2. These are pretty amazing, I wonder how it feels to wear them though since they are on the bias

  3. Socks are the arbiter between our feet and our shoes. So even before our perspiration trickles over to the opposite side and actuates the cycle for bacterial development, which ultimately prompts foot scent, socks act a catch bowl as it ingests sweat from our feet. socks India
