Ernouve Socks Knitting Pattern
Ernouvé is Guernsey Patois (or Guernsey French) for 'spring'.
Our island language, though all-but-dead, is a form of Norman French very close to Cornish, Breton and, according to my Great Uncle, even Sicilian! It’s highly possible as it has its roots in Latin along with manylanguages. There are steps being taken to try and save the language, but currently only 2% of the population speaks the language with any fluency.
This top-down sock has a row of leaves and buds that work their way down the back of the calf and onto the heel flap, while lacy stripes work their way down the instep. Finished with a round toe and then kitchenered closed, this sock is a breath of fresh Spring air to knit for yourself in the midst of Winter.
