Socks by Claudia Eisenkolb for ITO. These socks are inspired by her love of Japanese simplicity: clear shapes and lines and attention to detail. MOKUSEI features a diamond pattern created from simple knit and purl stitches. Gusset increases are worked at the same time as the heel, so no picking up of stitches is required. Sole and toe are worked in reverse stockinette for an extra comfortable wear.
