I have feet like Fred Flintsone, short and wide, and so I favour sock patterns with strong vertical lines that (I believe) make my feet look long and slender. These socks have that vertical element, and look fancy while they are actually very simple and fast. The panels of stitches have an arrow pattern created by slipping stitches with the yarn held in front. This is one of my favourite ways of showing off a handpainted yarn, but it doesn't have a lot of stretch, so this use is perfect. An elegant panel of arrows pointing right at your toes is balanced out by peaceful stockinette on a sock that is just as good for a gentleman or a lady.
