The Secret Garden Socks

I have released another sock pattern. This one, called The Secret Garden Socks feature rosebud flowers that flow up the foot and legs. Instead of a traditional knit bobble, I have use a crocheted version. This means that the bobble that represents the bud will be a fluffy part of yarn, instead of a hard ball. This also makes it ideal for use on a foot. The socks will be much easier to wear in shoes, compared to having regular bobbles.

The inspiration came from a club yarn I received a few months ago. It was from Into the Whirled, and is the Pakokku sock line, in the Yes! Encouragement colorway. It was such fun, bright colors that it just needed somewhere to shine. As I looked through different designs, it felt like most patterns would just fade away. So, I needed something that had the strength to not only compete with the color, but hold its own. The rosebud pattern does just that. The rosebud also makes the socks a bit thicker with the leaves and bobbles, so it makes them a great sock for cooler weather.

I hope you all enjoy this pattern!
