Pisum, the scientific name for peas. Between teaching basic Mendelian genetics to undergraduates and planting some on my patio, peas have been on my mind a bit. Personally, I think they’re lovely plants (As well as functional!) - not to mention good to discuss for educational reasons! So I decided the last sock pattern in this collection would be named after peas. :)

This pattern is top-down and includes both written and charted instructions. It comes with instructions for two sizes, but I found mine (64-st size) were quite stretchy. You can purchase this pattern individually or as part of the collection. Enjoy!
