This knit/purl version of the trellis motif holds its own even in this lively turquoise color. As you contemplate the toes of these socks, you will be intrigued by the way the purled lattice lines form symmetrical shapes other than diamonds (kites, for example) where they converge because of the toe shaping and foot joining.
