Slackcountry Socks in SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock - Digital Version
Slackcountry is skiing and riding just outside marked ski boundaries in search of fresh powder. The twisting and turning lines in these socks look like fresh ski tracks within straight boundary lines.
The columnar pattern itself is like a ribbing, so you cast on and dive right into the pattern stitches. No separate ribbed cuff is needed.
These socks feature a reinforced Dutch heel for strength and durability. Sole of the foot is knit in stockinette for comfort.
