Sunny spring days are the best: soft wind, gentle clouds passing by, birds singing and flowers dancing in the garden… These socks are just like such days: easy and mindless, with just enough texture here and there to keep the knitting interesting while allowing your mind to take a well-deserved rest!
These socks are knit from the bottom up in the round, and feature an afterthought heel. The texture is made using slipped stitches and tiny cables, and the flowers are embroidered at the top.
This pattern is both written and charted. It includes distinct instructions for each size, and a photo tutorial explaining the flower embroidery.
