Originally featured exclusively in the Tanis Fiber Arts Year in Colour 2011 club, this pattern is now available for you in wide release! I hope you will enjoy.
Living in a part of the world where winter often seems endless, I am always so relieved to discover that it does, in fact, eventually come to an end. It’s incredibly reassuring when the snow melts, the birds return, the sunshine feels warmer, and the grass and leaves start to grow again. Socks are always welcome in spring, particularly in colours reminiscent of the bloom returning to the world outside your front door. What better way to celebrate than with a bright pair of leafy-green, cabled vine socks?
This pattern is worked for 2 sizes, and uses a chart. Shaded sections of the chart are NOT worked, for the smaller size. Full chart is used for the larger size.
