Violet's Garden Socks

September 2013
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
7 stitches and 9 rows = 1 inch
in Stockinette
US 2 - 2.75 mm
380 - 400 yards (347 - 366 m)
women's medium (8.5" ankle/9.5" foot length) and large (9.5" ankle/10.5" foot length) Foot length is adjustable.

This enchanting and feminine sock design features a flowery lace pattern along the top of the foot and side of the leg.

The pattern represents the Talking Flowers (especially the shy Violet) in Lewis Carroll’s ,“Through the Looking Glass” fairytale. The yarn is soft and warm, while the slight color variation shows off the lace pattern beautifully.

These socks are cozy and comfortable as well as a perfect for wearing with either fancy clogs or sneakers. The lace and ribbing patterns on the leg and foot are very flexible, creating a more versatile and personalized fit.

Notions Needed:

clip-on stitch marker (or safety pin), small stitch markers, row counter, scissors, tapestry needle, measuring tape, sock blockers (optional).
