The Cottage Garden Socks are inspired by the flowers in my garden blooming in spring and feature an elegant lace pattern which reminds me of honeysuckle and climbing hydrangeas.

This is a toe up sock pattern with a heel flap, and leafy lace patterns on both the front and back of the sock. The pattern uses magic loop, but can also be adapted to use DPNs.
