Stroll down the berry lane and think of the lush summers ahead, 
as these socks warm your feet on the chilliest days.

the Berry Lane socks feature vine-like vertical panels accented with charming picot edgings. Created using simple increases and decreases, the stylised ‘berries’ 
produce an intricate, yet accessible, motif suitable for a wide range of skill levels.

Integrated Heel
This pattern features the Integrated method of heel construction. The Integrated Heel looks and fits similarly to the traditional heel flap and gusset, but is created largely in the round. A full tutorial on this method can be found in my Basic Sock with Integraed Heel pattern. It is not necessary to have this tutorial in order to work the heel; the instructions included here are absolutely sufficient. However, if you wish to obtain the tutorial with step-by-step pictures and tips for custom adjustments in fit, you can purchase it for 50¢ (Eur), with the purchase of the Berry Lane pattern. Simply add both patterns to your basket, and the discount will apply automatically.
