Early Spring sock pattern is now available
Early Spring sock pattern
Early Spring is a toe-up sock that begins with a provisional cast-on and continues with a short row toe. Lacey flower buds cover the instep while the sole & gusset are worked in stockinette stitch. The unique heel design does not require picking up stitches, and the tubular cast off provides a neat finish with plenty of stretch.
