The Tea at Bertram’s socks are knit toe-up with a short row heel, and feature arrow lace, columns of eyelets, and just a bit of seed stitch! Perfect for sipping tea and people watching, just as Miss Marple does in the fictitious Edwardian hotel that lends it’s name to these socks! The lace motif is an homage to the cardigan Geraldine McEwan wears as Miss Marple in the Masterpiece Mystery series.

Quince and Co. Tern, 2 skeins in the “Dusk” colorway

2.25mm/US 1 needles or whatever size needed to get gauge
