How about meeting spring halfway in a pair of bright and warm socks? Tussilago farfara is the latin name for the little yellow flower that arrives early in the spring months: coltsfoot. Tussilago Socks are worked top down using both colourwork and cable knitting. The colourwork section is partly worked with three strands on the same round, which makes these socks the perfect project for those who would like to try colourwork knitting holding more than two strands at the same time. The rounds are short and the result will be worth the effort! A simple cable pattern runs down on the outer side of the foot for the rest of the sock, like a spring brook happily pouring over stock and stone. Let´s meet spring together!
