Over the Garden Wall

March 2009
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
33 stitches and 47 rows = 4 inches
in stocking stitch
US 1½ - 2.5 mm

Deceptively simple, these socks are like a walk in an English garden. A dusting of lace trips over the toe and trellises all the way up to the cuff where it’s met by daisy chain cuff. Worked from the toe up, these socks also boast a flap-and-gusset heel that is easily adaptable for a perfect, individual fit.

The embellishment, a climbing vine of pea pods and delicate buds, is done in i-cord and added after the socks are complete. As it’s inspired by vegetable gardens and wild plots alike, it is designed to grow organically from wherever you place it -- decorate both socks, only one, from the ankle, around the cuff, wherever your fancy takes you!
