STRAIGHT ARROW

Straight Arrow is a colorwork sock pattern that lets the yarn shine. The main portions of the leg and foot, as well as the Straight Arrow motif, are worked in a subtle, speckled yarn. The cuff, short row heel, toe, and the background of the colorwork band are worked in a vibrant contrast color that makes the hues pop.
