This is a sock pattern inspired by one of my favorite fictional sleuths, Miss Jane Marple. She lives in the pretty village of St. Mary Mead, tends to her garden, knits, drinks tea and solves crimes. The book, “ A Pocketful of Rye” was the inspiration for this pattern, Miss Marple cracks the case with a simple childrens nursery rhyme.

The sock is knit from the cuff down, both charted and written instructions. Simple enough pattern to memorize, it will fly off the needles. The texture is squishy and bouncy. A round toe which requires no grafting.
