I fancied another pair with solid heels, toes and cuffs after making my Waffle House socks and liked how these colours worked together.

I worked a twisted 3×1 rib and then changed to a twisted 1×1 rib for the cuff:

As always I was determined to get the stripes to match which meant more ends than normal to sew in but it was worth it.

But unlike my Easter socks I made myself sew the ends in straight away so they didn’t languish in an almost finished state for weeks.

I particularly like the heels…
