The Spring Equinox marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring. As we leave our big coats and scarves behind, it’s a great time for fresh starts and new beginnings. The stars re-align, trees and plants show signs of new growth, and little lambs are born. This pattern is inspired by all those first signs that warmer days are coming. These top-down socks feature a twisted rib cuff and two lace panels along the front of the sock. As we’re leaving winter behind, the lace makes the socks airy and light to enjoy the first warmer spring days, while still keeping you warm enough during the colder mornings and evenings.

This pattern is released as part of a collab between The Blue Rabbit House, Woollentwine Fiberstudio and myself.

The sample was made using Woollentwine Fibrestudio Sustainable Sock (100% non-superwash wool, 300m/328yds, 120 g per skein) in the Alma colourway.
Any fingering weight sock yarn can be used.
