Chasm by Lisa K Ross. Chasm is a toe-up sock designed to pair the comfort of cozy ribbed socks with the attractive and whimsical effects of lace knitting. Inspired by the deep and intricate chasms within Montana’s mountainous terrain, these socks form a break in the ribbed texture on the instep to make way for decorative lace. This striking crevasse grows along the instep and wraps its way around the leg, creating a clever and inviting pair of woolen socks.
