The Wizard lives in the Emerald City, and that’s a long journey from here. Did you bring your broomstick with you?” - Glinda, The Wizard of Oz

There’s more than one way to get to the Emerald City. No broomstick? No problem-- just be sure you have your knitting needles. These toe-up socks use luxurious Anzula Squishy to lead the way in style and comfort. Knit with simple decreases and yarnovers, these lace socks create dramatic results as openwork “emeralds” work their way up to the cuff. With a pattern that is both written and charted, it won’t take a wizard to complete this gorgeous footwear. Leave your broomstick and ruby slippers at home, we’re off to the Emerald City!
