Airmid is named for the Celtic goddess associated healing and especially herbal healing. The socks features the twists of a herbal plant, sprouting leaves as it runs up the sock. The leaf cable on the back of the sock is a simpler version of the pattern on the front. The sock ends in a simple twisted ribbing that compliments the more intricate cable-leaf motif of the main pattern.
The sock is worked from the toe up. The cable patterns used in this pattern are all charted
Airmid was originally designed as the third instalment of the MacKintosh Yarns Sock Club 2011.
