The Summer Blooms Socks are knit from the toe up with a delicate cable and flower lace panel on the front side of each sock. A balance of enough detail to keep the mind interested but also enough mindless vanilla knitting once the lace stitches are worked.

The pattern has a wedge toe and a choice of two Wrap and Turn short row heels (standard worked over 50% of stitches or a deeper heel worked over 60%), however the heel and toe can be changed to your own choice. They are knit using the magic loop method but can be adapted to suit dpns.
