In addition to being good advice for life in general, “Bloom Where You’re Planted” is inspired by cherry blossoms and growth so I wanted a pattern that would grow with the sock. ‘Bloom Where You’re Planted’ is worked toe up and features a delicate, easy to memorize cable pattern that grows and ‘blooms’ as the sock grows and blooms. The sock features a sole flap and gussets and the stitch pattern continues on the front and back of the leg to the cuff.
