When the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye, you’ll reach for these breezy short anklets. These summery socks, made from a single skein of luxurious yarn, are perfect for warm-weather knitting and wearing. With just a hint of lace, these anklets are worked from toe to cuff, with a short-row heel. The stitch patterns refl ect quintessential summer plants—delicate “rosebuds“ frame a center panel of “corn stalks.”
