Sybaritic adjective
- fond of luxury or pleasure, self-indulgent

These really are shamelessly feminine and marvelously indulgent. The cuff is embossed with an intricate leaf pattern that flows beautifully into the leg. One lone stem trails down your leg and wraps itself around your ankle (hiding the gusset as it goes) and ends in a final leaf on the top of your foot.

I can’t think of anything more lovely!

The pattern comes in two sizes (64 and 72 stitch cast on). And of course you should feel free to adjust your gauge a bit to fine tune the fit of the sock. Just be sure that you’re working at a gauge that gives you a sturdy sock fabric with your chosen yarn. I recommend working at something around 7, 8, or 9 stitches per inch, and I’ve included a table to help you figure out what gauge you’ll want to use for the size you need.

These are perfect for you if:

  • You want to make a really special pair of socks
  • You want to do something clever with your next gusset

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
