Pinecones, needles, acorns, samaras, chestnuts, and blossoms. The trees of our forests produce so many curious and delightful shapes, it gets our hearts all a-flutter! The Forest Fruit socks pay homage to nature’s inspiring natural objects, with flora-esque colourwork motifs

Ankle circumference: 20.5 cm/ 8 inches

36 sts and 48 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) over Stockinette Stitch, after blocking. Adjust needle size to obtain correct gauge.

Socks are knitted in the round from the cuff down using double pointed needles (DPNs).
Sizing: Unfortunately, due to the amount of stitches inone repeat of the chart pattern, I could not
easily grade this pattern for more sizes. A solution to change the size of the pattern is to change the stitch gauge by using a different needle size. For a larger circumference, use a larger needle size than the recommended size, and for a smaller circumference use a smaller needle size.
