Little Mary Lennox crept about the ivy-covered walls of the gardens, searching for a hidden door. But even if she managed to find the door, she would first need to find a long lost key. With a little luck and some help from her friend the Robin, perhaps Mary could unlock not only the garden, but the hearts of everyone at the manor.

These socks are inspired by the story The Secret Garden, first published in 1911 by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Ivy covers the legs of the socks. And under the foot of one of the socks is the hidden key.

The socks are knit top down with a heel flap and standard toe. Special care has been taken in the instructions to explain how to keep the stripes lined up in the heel.
