- the dispersal of plant seeds or spores by the wind
This stitch pattern reminds me of the the tiny fly-away seeds on the flowers in my front yard. It looks impressive but is surprisingly simple to execute. The curvy lines of the main motif are echoed in the curves of the gusset and in the arch shaping.
This sock works at a range of gauges. It is shown in a thinner yarn at a gauge of 8.5 stitches per inch, but if you prefer to work with a thicker yarn at a gauge of 7.5 stitches per inch, you can. At a thinner gauge, it fits a foot or leg of 7.25, 8.25 or 9.25 inches. At the thicker gauge, it fits a foot or leg of 8.25, 9.5, or 10.5 inches.
