Racing Purls Sock Pattern - Knit
This sock is a step above a vanilla sock, and good for someone who is looking for a quick sock to help pad out their sock drawer. Inspired by racing stripes on a comfy pair of joggers or a jacket, the purl section that runs down the side provides visual intrigue as well as helping the sock skim the curves of the ankle and calf.
