“When the world wearies and society ceases to satisfy, there is always the garden.” – Minnie Aumonier The vibrant colors that Ellie (Alive With Purpose) chooses to dye her yarns with always make me smile and remind me of beautiful flowers in a garden. Combining these happy shades with the simple twisted stitches and cables in this pattern made me think of wrought iron gates surrounding a joyful flower bed. I hope that you also find joy and comfort in knitting this pair of Springy socks as the world begins to wake up outside, the flowers begin to bloom, and the sun shines brighter and longer with each day. The pattern includes variations for both toe-up and cuff-down options and uses a short-row heel along with a standard wedge toe, but feel free to substitute your favorites as needed. This pattern is written for 6 sizes: Baby – Adult Large.
