The Orage socks are knitted cuff down, with a heel flap and French heel. The pattern features a cable motif that works as the ribbing and represents lightning. I have been inspired by the electric storms that I could see when living in France so I decided to name it after the beautiful word for ‘storm’ in French: Orage.
