The magic of Spring is the inspiration for these gorgeously cheerful socks.
Knit in the round and cuff down, with intriguing curved lines and petite nupps of the easier-than-it-looks lace panel create an illusion of flowers before adapting into an interesting point on the instep. The plain back is complemented by twisted rib heels and cuffs to echo the crispness of an early Spring.
The pattern is provided with both written instructions and charts.
