Autumn is by far my favorite season. I love the promise of change and the chill in the air after a long summer. Although I’m no longer living in an area where I have a front row seat to the explosion of colors, I still have a great appreciation for the beauty of the season.

These socks are the perfect thing to ward off the dropping temperatures. They are worked from the toe up, with leaves organically growing out of a stockinette toe. The leaves march their way up the sock, past a toe-up heel flap, and transition into a rib that compliments the strong vertical lines of the pattern.

Errata: There was a minor error in the pattern when it was first published - you should begin the Instep Chart (after working the toe) on row 7, not row 1. This does not affect the sock construction, it just makes the toe-to-pattern transition look prettier. This error has been corrected on the Knitty website.
