Inga Loves Fröderick
“Inga Loves Fröderick” is a quick-knit pair of socks with a lot of impact. The pattern resembles a traditional Bavarian motif, but the twisted-stitch medallions on the front are actually an original design based on a leaded-glass panel. The finished socks can be left as-is or customized with embroidery in your choice of colors for a truly unique pair of socks.
Photos show Adult Small on woman’s size 8 foot. Worked in a subdued color and omitting the embroidery, the sock could be worn by men as well. Due to the elastic nature of the twisted-stitch design, foot-circumference sizing is somewhat forgiving.
