Petal Pusher Socks

Petal Pusher Socks

February always has me thinking of hearts and flowers and all things lovey dovey. So, this month’s socks feature a stitch pattern that reminds me of rose petals and are knit in a colorway named for this month’s birthstone, amethyst.

 

Depending on if you knit them cuff-down or toe-up, your petals will either be falling down your legs (toe-up) or floating up from your toes (cuff-down). The pattern includes variations for both options and uses a short-row heel along with a standard wedge toe, but feel free to substitute your favorites as needed.

 

Since everyone at any age should be able to feel the love knit into a pair of handmade socks, the pattern is written for 4 sizes: Baby – Adult Large. It is a bit stretchy too so knit to the length you need.
