These unisex, toe-up, mirrored socks feature a twisted-stitch variant of mock-beaded rib that braids in a pattern gently twisting partway around the sock. The heel gusset is on the bottom of the foot leading to a reinforced heel turn and flap. Optional glass beads emphasize the appearance of sparkling raindrops.

Pattern requires reading both written directions and charts.
