Guan-Xi - Socks

The Inspiration for Guan-Xi (关系 , Chinese for “relationships”) comes from the joy of the connections and relationships we create in this community. The knotted cabled lattice stitch used on the leg of the sock mimics the connections and relationship that bring joy to our lives. The contrast color pops mimic random events in our lives that bring happiness. This heavy fingering weight sock is worked top-down in the round with a ribbed cuff, knotted cable lattice stitch on the top of the leg, contrast color textured heel flap, and a band of contrast colour before a rounded toe.
