These socks were inspired by the stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Laura wrote about her childhood, growing up on the prairies of Kansas. As I was knitting these socks, the stitch pattern reminded me of the wheat fields that Pa Ingalls farmed.

I would like to imagine that this is the kind of pattern that Ma would have knitted for her family.

I set out with the intention of creating a pattern that was relaxing to knit whilst still being engaging, exciting and addictive !

The pattern includes 4 video tutorials to demonstrate the texture pattern, heel turn, gusset pick up and Kitchener stitch.

It is perfect for all levels of knitter and comes in 3 sizes to accommodate all your family members.
