“Just imagine early morning dewdrops sparkling on garden flowers. This was my inspiration for these socks. Dewdrops has all of my favorite things: lace, cables, and a touch of beads for sparkle. I hope you have as much fun with these socks as I did.”

Knit cuff-down with a beaded garter stitch cuff, beaded leg, detailed heel flap, and wedge toe. Pattern has both written and charted instructions provided.

Pagewood Farms St. Elias has very generous yardage. 100 gm of regular fingering weight sock yarn should be enough to knit a pair of “Dewdrops”. The sample socks (size 8) used about 300 yards (100 gm) of yarn.

Originally designed for TheKnitter.com luxury sock club.

5/23/10 Prototype was knit with 2 rows of beads in the cuff. The kit pattern is written for one row of beads.
