Near where I grew up in England, there is a street which looks beautiful in autumn as the leaves change from green to rich fall colors. Now that I'm in Southern California, I do miss the beauty of each season as it chages, so I rustled up these socks as something seasonal for my feet!
These are a cuff down sock incorporating a simple leafy lace design with both written instructions and charts. The yarn was custom designed for the pattern by Carissa Bonham of the Cupcake Factory, capturing the range of colors that inspired the design. The photo shows a women's size 7 sock, which used approximately 230 yards. A single skein would accommodate a larger foot or additional pattern repeats on the leg.
Yarn: Buttercream yarn in Pumpkin Pie colorway [100g / 3.5oz; 460 yards (421 m); 75% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon] available at The Cupcake Factory.
Needles: 2.5mm (Size 1.5 US) double pointed needles
Notions: Stitch marker, tapestry needle
Gauge: 8 stitches and 10 rows = 1" in pattern stitch
NOTE: The lace pattern will make the sock seem narrow until it is placed on the foot, which will open up the lace and expand the sock!
This pattern is available for $5.00 either through my Etsy store, or by clicking the buy now button below.
Thanks to my test knitters who helped me make sure that the pattern is clear and easy to read!
