Jocelyn dreamed up these cozy Owl socks for loafing around a fire or wood stove, slipping down in the morning for the first hot beverage of the day. The main moss stitch pattern is accented with cables that run alongside the foot all the way to the toe shaping. These socks are knitted from the top of the leg down to the toe with a square heel.
