Step gently in these socks. Like an elf in her woodland kingdom.
In these beautiful socks you can wear the forest on your feet as large leaves entwine on the surface from the cuff to the toe on a reverse stockinette stitch background.
Knit from the cuff down, the socks have a traditional construction with a heel flap and gusset, but this time the heel-flap is worked in an interesting triangle pattern created with knit and purl stitches. The triangles are repeated on a small band just after the cuff and just before the toe decreases.
You will need 320-366m / 350-400y of fingering weight yarn. The sample is size S and was knit using The Wool Barn Twist Sock in Potion. An alternative yarn is suggested below.
