Dandelion Patch Shortie Socks
Dandelion Patch Socks – you know how it is, suddenly the bright yellow dandelion flowers are everywhere on the lawn. They are lovely in all their simplicity, let’s celebrate them on a lace sock, worked from the toe up. The lace pattern is repetitive, just like the dandelion´s way of coming back again and again. The heel is worked as a fleegle heel with short rows shaping the back part of the heel for a good fit. At the top of the leg a delicate lace ribbing finishes off the sock. The pattern is provided in five sizes.
