I designed this toe-up sock pattern for my godmother. She loves her garden with the flowers and trees. As her birthday is in October, these socks have big leaves falling down the socks as do the leaves of the trees and some little leaves are running around the leg to show that not all vegetation lost its leaves.
The socks size M are knitted with 68 sts to give some comfort in width, the socks size S are knitted with 60 sts to be smaller. Feel free to reduce the stitches to 56 sts, if you prefer wearing your socks in shoes or use smaller needles to get socks with negative ease. The length is easily customizable to your foot/leg.

The pattern is charted and partially written. It is written for circular needles. There are two border options.

Due to the twisted stitches and the border, it is for intermediate knitters.
