Laura Chau

Delicious Knee Socks


You'll have lots of fun knitting and wearing these Laura Chau striped knee socks! Knit a custom fit in a variety of foot and calf sizes - over forty size combinations. A slipped stitch "seam" up the back of the leg hides the usual jog between the stripes and looks pretty too. If you don't want stripes, just knit them in a beautiful solid color for socks you'll reach for all of the time!
