for Dana Gervais Designs   2017


When science meets yarn beautiful sock are the result. Mitochondrial DNA is passed down almost unchanged from a mother to her children. Worked from the cuff down, this Mother’s Day inspired design features a double helix DNA strand cable on the front of the leg and top of the foot of the sock. The ribbed cuff disappears in a ‘V’ shape on the back of the leg just before the heel flap.
