Miss Margaret Socks
Miss Margaret was created for Sharon at Three Irish Girls and released May 2010 for the Three Irish Girls Sock Yarnista Club. She is a cuff down sock with an easy to remember spiral stitch pattern. I’ve added beads for a little “bling” but she’s just as pretty without. The spiral pattern melts into a cabled heel flap and is framed by prettily cabled gussets for a great fit.
Miss Margaret will be available soon at www.ThreeIrishGirls.com. The pink sample is shown in Scarlett O’Hara by Yarn Love , colorway: Petal.
Intermediate difficulty: pattern assumes familiarity with cables and charts. Bead work is done using a small crochet hook, so you don’t have to pre-string the beads.
