These socks are worked from the toe up with a short-row heel. The top of the cuff features a highly embossed rosebud pattern. The rosebuds are created by increasing many stitches, but the stitch
count will go back to the original once the rosebuds are complete. Be sure to use a stretchy bind off, such as Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off, at the top of the ribbing.

I prefer the Shadow Wraps for the short-row heel. If you prefer another type of wrap, feel free to use it, just be sure to hide the wraps when working the wrapped stitches.

This pattern is geared towards more advanced sock knitters.

SIZES S (M, L). Socks should fit with 2” of negative ease in the leg.
