Every year we anticipate the ︎tiny green shoots with hope. With crocus comes spring; new beginnings, warmth, sunshine, and happiness... When it seems that winter will never end, the flower manages to push its way through the snow in a wondrous explosion of colour.
This pattern is gender neutral in design. The sock is as masculine or feminine as the yarn you choose to knit with. Instructions are both written and charted. A pair of socks is completed with one 100g skein of fingering weight yarn. We suggest a light tonal colourway to show off the intricate pattern stitches.
Size Throughout the pattern instructions, numbers will refer to the small size [lady’s size 7] first and the larger sizes [medium - lady’s size 9, large - man’s size 9] in brackets. The sock should fit with minimal negative ease.
