These cheerful socks, with their cheeky contrast toes, are a
great introduction to a heel turn. Starting at the cuff with a twisted rib edging, the pattern then is worked in a simple lacy rib design. The heel is a classic heel flap and turn construction, and the pattern includes a photo tutorial on how to turn the heel, as well as stepwise instructions for picking up the stitches around the gusset.

The Antirrhinum socks are not available as a single pattern.
