This sock pattern is inspired by the Swedish term Vårvinter, which names the season between winter and spring. In “spring winter”, “late winter” or “early spring” the powerful sunlight and warmer temperatures come back after the long and dark winter time.
The ice get cracks and begins to melt and the very first spring flowers appear - this is what the pattern reflects.

This pattern is written in English and contains:
step for step written instructions
and a colorwork chart.

Sizes
Foot circumference:
S-M approx. 20-21 cm,

The pattern is written for size M (2.25-2.5mm (US 1.0-1.5) needles). But the size can easily be adjusted by the choice of the needle size.

or
every other fingering weight sock yarn you are able to get the gauge with.

Approx. 75-80 g (315-340 m / 350-370 yards)
