The Apple Blossom socks celebrate that moment of the year where everything seems to burst into bloom at once. The magic is strongest in the middle of an orchard, surrounded by thousands of tiny flowers and the lively scent of spring. Apple Blossom features an easy ribbed pattern along the leg and the foot features rows of little eyelets like blossoms along a branch.

The socks are knit from the cuff down with a traditional heel flap and gusset.

The Apple Blossom pattern is written in Curious Handmade’s Percentage Checklist™ style. Whether you’re an experienced sock knitter or just starting your first pair, this pattern will keep you motivated through every stitch.
