Ferngully is a cuff down sock pattern featuring lace and some simple cables. A slipped stitch heel flap and gusset decreases on the bottom of the foot give these socks a great fit. The pattern was inspired by one of my favourite movies while growing up: Ferngully, the last rainforest. The combination of the organic looking pattern and gorgeous chartreuse coloured yarn seem to capture its spirit perfectly.

There are 3 sizes available: Small (56 stitches), Medium (64 stitches) and Large (72 stitches).

You’ll need 70-90 grams of fingering weight sock yarn.
Exclusive, limited edition yarn + pattern kits are available in my webshop. These kits include a beautiful skein of sock yarn in the original Ferngully colourway, handdyed by Het Wolbeest.
