Hikaru by Norichan Knits | Balancing interesting knitting with comfort can sometimes be a hassle, but Hikaru has solutions for both. A fun cable runs asymmetrically up the sock and the balance is of ribbing, allowing for a good amount of stretch to allow for a variety of circumferences. The foot size offers four different circumferences.

- Color B: Daydream (1 skein is recommended. It is unlikely you will use the entirety of a skein for your pair of socks, but this will depend on what size your feet are.)
