The Friendship socks feature intricate intertwining cables in diverging and converging paths. These symbolize friendship to me -- whatever paths you may take, you’ll still be together. These socks are also pretty complicated, so I only recommend them for gifts for someone you really love.

The left and right socks are mirrored on the top of the foot but are otherwise identical. You may notice that the larger sized socks have shorter cuffs. This is intentional for two reasons: (1) larger feet will require more yarn, so the cuffs are shortened to use a similar amount of yarn, and (2) if you have larger feet, you may also have shapelier calves and these cables don’t have that much give.
