Reminiscent of Irish dancing boots, these socks were inspired by the Irish Goddess Anu, who ruled over the springs and fountains that bestowed their potency to the lush greens of the hills. With a wavy purl ridge, adorned with eyelets traveling down the leg, you might just want to kick up a jig when you wear them!

This is a good “beginner” sock pattern that introduces new techniques without being overwhelming. You’ll have comfortable feet with the reinforced heel, round toe, and snug cuff.
