Product Details

So much of 20th century spycraft involved coding, decoding, and cracking radio messages. I love all of the stories of how governments fought wars over short wave through coded language from the lovely simplicity of Morse code to the ingenious complexity of the Navajo windtalkers.

These socks are worked from the top down in a chevron stitch adapted to each size. A gusset is worked into the pattern before and after the short row heel. Patterning continues all the way from the cuff to the toe, which means that variegated and stripy yarns really sing. This is knit in a heavier weight of yarn than normal for socks, resulting in a quick knit that's oh so comfy on the feet.
