“Die Fledermaus” (The Bat) is the younger Johann Strauss’s most celebrated and popular operetta - intoxicatingly melodious and exuberant. Mistaken identities, flirtations at a masked ball, elegant frivolities and confusions of all kinds provide a hilarious vehicle for some of the most captivating music ever written. At the end when all misunderstandings are cleared up, the whole company agrees that it’s best to blame it all on the champagne.

In the cable patterns of these socks you can find all those twists and turns of the plot, resulting in a very pleasing overall picture.

I hope you enjoy knitting these socks - with or without a glass of champagne by your side…
