  • Crystal - Socks

    These cosy socks were inspired by heirlooms passed down in Izabela's family for generations - crystal vases. Crystal is more delicate than glass and is cut to create intricate designs on the surface. The lines intertwining in very geometrical, sharp patterns that are characteristic for certain types of crystal vases are reflected in these beautiful socks.

    The Crystal socks are worked cuff-down, with a unique heel flap and gusset construction and an intricate twisted stitch cable panel on the instep.
