These delicate lacy socks are inspired by the blossom on the apple trees in my garden, with a colourwork flower section and a petal and wrapped stitch bud pattern travelling down the front and the back, framed by an eyelet pattern which reminds me of the petals tumbling from the branches in the breeze.

There are increases before the colourwork, this means that the lack of ‘give’ in the stranded pattern can be overcome, the decreases before the leg will ensure the sock fits well.

Sizes: Small - Foot circumference 7-8 inches and Large - Foot circumference 9-10 inches.
