I hope you are keeping well. I don't know about you but this Winter has felt like the longest one ever, so I'm very happy to see the green shoots of Spring and notice the days getting ever-so-slightly longer! Summer may seem like a long way away right now so I'm bringing it one step closer today with the launch of my new sock pattern. These are the Summer Vine socks pattern, a new pattern which is now available to download from the website, Ravelry and Payhip.
About the Summer Vine Socks
Originally published in Knit Now magazine the Summer Vine socks were inspired by fresh green vines of twisting ivy cascading down a garden fence. I wanted the pattern to capture the essence of a blooming summer garden with trails of airy delicate lace.
The Summer Vine socks are worked from the top down, starting with a ribbed cuff. Then you will work the cascading lace pattern down the leg of the sock. The heel is worked as a heel flap with the pretty Eye of Partridge slip stitch pattern, and a gusset is worked for a nice comfortable fit.
Then it’s back to working in the round, continuing with the trailing leaf pattern which closes as a single lace leaf at the toe.
The pattern is written for 3 adult sizes and video tutorials are provided for the stitches and techniques used to make the socks.
Thank you Donna, Sabina, Hazel, Joanne and Teresa!
Until next time, happy knitting,
