This pattern started with a fabulous berry-hued yarn that needed to be made into a bobbled sock - and we mean NEEDED.
While playing around with various swatches, designer Chrissy Gardiner discovered the demure petite lace design that adorns the instep. From there, she was inspired to make these socks ladylike in front, party in the back with a saucy bobbled panel and linen stitch heel flap that will have them watching as you walk away.
Luckily, this pattern is as fun to knit as it is to look at with an easy rhythm and enough variety to keep it interesting.
