These socks come from several ideas, but the biggest one was the idea of travelling lace leaves. I fell in love with this motif the first time I saw it, and this seemed the perfect place to use it! When I was working the partial garter rib, it reminded of a newly sown garden, all in neat lines. Hence, the name of the socks was a relatively easy choice!

These socks are knit cuff-down, with a standard heel flap and grafted toe. While the sample was knit on dpns, the pattern is written to be knitted using any circular knitting method. The lace motif is both written and charted. Instructions are given for two sizes.

Pattern Notes:

These socks are knit from the cuff down, with a heel-flap and gusset construction.  The ribbing on the cuff flows into a lace leaf motif on a garter stitch background.  The toes are decreased, and then grafted with Kitchener Stitch.

The Garden Lace Stitch Pattern is both charted and written. This knitting pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software, which includes the written instruction.  Pattern has been tech-edited.
