This sock pattern is one of 28 in my ebook, Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters. My Personal Footprint method is fun and easy, and captivates even seasoned sock knitters with its innovative approach and ease of fitting any foot. It is ideal for normal feet as well as feet with unusually high or low insteps, and heels of all sizes and shapes.

In a thrift shop on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington I found a ratty cotton sweater with a leaf design I’d never seen. I took a photo, came home and began to fiddle. This is what evolved.
