DEW DROPLETsocks

The DEW DROPLET socks feature a delicate cable and eyelet pattern that is not only beautiful and easy to work, but also a variation of ribbing. This makes the socks fit nice and snug.
Worked cuff-down and with an adjustable heel flap and gusset construction the DEW DROPLET socks are easy to adapt to your needs. The pattern comes in four sizes and includes tips on how to modify the instructions to get a sock that fits you perfectly.
