The Country Garden sock pattern is inspired by the quaint cottage gardens of the British countryside. The trellis topped fences and pretty butterflies fluttering by.

It is written as a top down sock with heel flap and gusset instructions. The trellis, butterfly and lawn heel patterns are written out in full as well as charted.

Gauge in butterfly pattern: 9 stitches per inch / 11 rows per inch on 2.5mm needles
Gauge in stockinette stitch: 8 stitches per inch / 11 rows per inch on 2.5mm needles

Due to the difference in size between butterfly pattern and stockinette you will need to increase your normal stitch count by 4 stitches or go up needle size.

More information on how I get my socks to fit can be found on my YouTube channel:

I also have a video tutorial on how to cable without a cable needle:

I also have a tutorial on how to complete the stitch I have marked as X on the pattern.
