A simple, classic ribbed sock with just enough interest along the top of the leg to give them a nice grip, and an interesting pattern to enjoy knitting. These are just perfect for the guy in your life who loves hand knit socks, but doesn’t want anything too “colorful” or “fussy.” Of course, they also work wonderfully with colorful yarns!

About the name, Suchet Socks : The colors in this yarn reminded me of one of my favorite shows, Agatha Christie’s Poirot. The actor who plays Poirot in the series is named David Suchet. So there you go. Order and method, order and method.
