This pattern is available exclusively through your favorite ITO retailer.
Well-known German knitwear designer Claudia Eisenkolb (also known as Himawari Knits) has created these slick, diamond-patterned socks for ITO. Claudia found inspiration in the attention to detail and stark simplicity of Japanese design. The result is simple yet beautiful, with geometric forms and thoughtful details including standout cuff-shaping and a purled sole for extra comfort. Gusset increases are worked at the same time as the heel, so no picking up of stitches is required.
