“Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance?”
-The Mock Turtle, Alice in Wonderland

You’ll be all set for the Lobster Quadrille with these fancy feet. The slip pattern uses unique stitches to create a paneled look, similar to the shell of a turtle, while still allowing the brilliant handpainted color to take center stage. So slip on these fancy feet, grab your crustaceous partner, and join the dance!

The Mock Turtle Socks are worked top down with a slipped stitch heel flap and standard gusset. Slip stitch motif is centered on front of ankle, with a ribbing on back of leg.
