This is the last design in Socks Yeah! collection. Leafy Socks feature an easy lace pattern which is ideal for knitters at any level and the DK or worsted weight makes them a super fast knit!
The socks are worked upwards from toe to cuffs. The leafy lace is initially located on the front (top) only, making it easy to use the magic-loop technique. The heels are shaped using w&t short rows. After the heels are complete the leafy lace covers the whole leg. The socks are finished with short, twisted rib cuffs.
