This beautiful sock pattern is available in 4 sizes and features a slipped stitch spruce tree detailing at the ankle. Let this pattern bring you a pair of festive socks during the holidays or a unique detailed sock all throughout the colder months. Make for yourself or as a gift, these tiny spruce trees are sure to bring happiness to both the maker and the wearer.

These socks are constructed one at a time from the top, down. Heel is shaped using a heel flap technique. If you are familiar with other sock techniques or have a favorite heel construction, you may easily substitute. Careful attention must be given when you adjust for the heel flap to make sure your tree detailing is positioned on the outer ankle of each sock.
