When the seasons come around to spring, I am always entranced by the shiny newness of the first green budding of leaves in my garden. These socks start from Judy’s Magic Cast-On toes and open up into a delightful leafy pattern. The delicate leaf columns of the Spring Fever socks are not only decorative, they also function as a widely spaced ribbing providing compression and elasticity. Because the socks are made from the toe up it’s easy to make them as long or short as you like.

About the book…

Ever wonder if Judy’s Magic Cast-On could be used outside of socks? Judy Becker shows five ways to use JMCO. Twenty-three patterns from twenty-one designers showcase each clearly illustrated technique. Adventurous knitters will find fun projects and a treasure map to explore.
