These toe-up socks use an intricate cable pattern on the front, with a wide rib on the back of the leg for a better fit. Much of the work is done with increases and decreases which remove a lot of the bulk of such a large cable. The socks are mirrored, so the pattern provides separate instructions where necessary.Sizes
