Rosebuds peek through the briars in the colorfully textured cuff of these top-down socks. A cleverly fitted German heel (with garter stitch columns for close fit) and French toe make this sock something special. A small section of stranded knitting near the toe echoes the latticed design of the cuff.
My favorite part of the pattern? Ribbing hidden beneath the cuff gives a snug fit.
