Product description

The Lewaro socks have all the nostalgia of a vintage sock pattern with the addition of thoughtful, modern details. Designed with wear in mind, the stockinette toe and sturdy heel make these elegant socks just as comfortable to wear as they are compelling to knit. Classic and twisted cables combine in a dynamic interplay of texture and direction, twining their way from cuff to toe. In Peerie’s solid palette, the design details — both charted and written — leap off the fabric, showcasing every stitch in crisp relief.
