Allow yourself to be open to love, empathy, selflessness and devotion while wearing these Anahata (heart chakra) inspired socks.

Yarn courtesy of the lovely Jessica of Zarzuela Fibers.

UPDATE: Version 1.1 is now available for download. (I re-wrote the Medium/Large directions to be simpler and less confusing.) :)

  • This pattern will be on sale from May 21 - August 21, 2012 for the Summer of Socks event on Ravelry. If you click on the “buy it now” button, it will automatically give you the $2 discount. Woo-hoo! *
  • Pattern will also be available through my SleepyEyes app for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch in the last week of June (or hopefully before…sorry, there was an issue with iTunes that needed fixing) for $2.99 and is also easily downloaded from the app to your computer for convenience.
  • The socks pictured were knitted using Zarzuela Fibers“Light Juniper” and “Anahata” colorways.
  • The leafy edging of the sock is knit first and then the leg stitches are picked up along the circumference of the leafy/garter edging.
  • This pattern includes both written instructions AND charts for the lace patterns.
  • Difficulty: Intermediate/Advanced
