Worked from the cuff down, these socks use twisted and wrapped stitches to evoke the elegant curves of a fence or gate made of wrought iron. When combined with yarn in a cheerful purple or pink, this brings to mind the vivid shades of a garden at its fullest bloom. These socks are a perfect small project for summer, but if you can’t knit these up under the sun, make them in winter as a reminder that warmer weather will come again!
