This pattern is inspired by that magical time of year when the world wakes up from its long winter nap and trees are re-born from brown and barren to lush with foliage in bright shades of green. That moment when the sun is so bright and warm that it makes everything it shines on look a little brighter. When the first blooms of the season open and their burst of colour changes not only the landscape but everyone’s mood; even the birds seem to sing more loudly and happily. The first word that comes to mind to describe this time of year, for me, is halcyon. Halcyon is an adjective that is defined as:

Denoting a period of time in the past that was idyllically happy and peaceful. This pattern and this yarn are designed to remind you of the halcyon days of spring when the world feels (if only for a moment) idyllically happy and peaceful.

Halcyon is worked from the toe up and features ribbing across the top of the toe and foot. Gusset increases are moved from the sides of the foot to the instep to accommodate the emerging floral stitch
that starts on the top of the foot and continues up the front of the leg. The sock ends with a ribbed cuff.

The pattern is graded for 4 circumferences and foot length is customizable.
