This was the Solid Socks Mystery Sock for November/December 2016.

I was inspired by my mother’s love of nature and walking in the woods when designing this sock pattern. The socks begin with stars (or snowflakes) after the cuff, followed by trees and then a river pattern on the foot.

Techniques included: knit, purl, twisted stitches, 1/1 cables, knitting in the round, kitchener

The length of sock can be modified to suit your leg/preferences. Each section has repeats that can be easily repeated or reduced to increase/decrease the length of the leg or foot. The tree repeat is a longer repeat, but the star and river repeats are relatively small.

The pattern is top down only. Charts and written instructions are provided. If you wanted to knit these toe up, you should just be able to turn the charts upside down and use your preferred toe, heel, and cuff bind off.
