How does one grow tulips in the desert? “With lots of love and care,” she answered. The same applies to you, dear knitter! When you love the look of the socks you can make your own with lots of love and care.

Stranded colorwork makes nicely cushioned toes and heels to give you comfort and a spring in your step.

Socks are worked cuff down with a non-standard afterthought heel. Size refers to sock foot circumference.

Approximate yarn amounts depending on size:
MC 50 – 70 g / 1.76 – 2.47 oz.
CC1 (flowers) 8 – 12 g / 0.28 – 0.42 oz.
CC2 (leaves) 15 – 17 g / 0.53 – 0.6 oz.

2.5 mm / US 1½ (working on single color) and 2.75 mm / US 2 (for colorwork), double point needles or circular needles, depending on your preferred method for small diameter circular knitting

Sock foot circumference unstretched 18(20, 22) cm / 7(7⅞, 8⅝)”.
