Inspired by springtime in Japan, the Haru Socks feature a textured knit and purl pattern resembling dragonflies, small flowers, or the bow of an obi.

The Haru Socks are worked toe-up and start with a closed cast on method such as Judy’s magic cast on. The design includes a gusset, short row heel, and picot cuff. The textured knit/purl pattern is both written and charted.
