The ‘Blooming Lavender’ sock pattern was created with the inspiration of lavender and their upright flower spikes and long green foliage. These socks are knit from the cuff down with a 1x1 ribbed cuff, an eye of patridge heel-flap and gusset (alternative heels can be substituted) and have a section of colourwork on the leg and a small section before the toe decreases. This pattern uses the magic loop circular needle method (but can easily be knit with dpns).

This pattern has step by step English instructions with charts for the colourwork sections.

There are two different stitch counts for the colourwork section on the leg. One for a small/medium size and one for large (or for any knitters with high heel arches).
The needles size is also chosen according to the size required and gauge for the colourwork section.
•Small (foot circumference 19-20cm) 2.25mm (US1) needles, 38sts x 40 rounds 10cm
•Medium (foot circumference 21-22cm) 2.5mm (US1.5) needles, 34sts x 38 rounds 10cm
•Large (foot circumference 23-24cm) 2.75mm (US2) needles, 32sts x 36 rounds 10cm

Foot length is easily adjustable.
