Fern springs out of the ground. Fresh green leaves enroll themselves, looking somewhat otherworldly. Might elves wear boots like those?
Cuff-down knits with just half of mid-calf height, a fresh fern lace pattern, and a traditional heel which creates a boot-like design. For some midsummernight‘s dream, knit them in cotton or bamboo sock yarn.
