Mary’s Garden Sock Knitting Pattern
I hope knitters will find this to be a fun pattern to make. It is simple enough to be “do-able” for those new to fair isle socks, but with enough bright colors to make it enjoyable to the more experienced as well.
This pattern was inspired by my great friend Mary. She maintains her integrity and cheerfulness through thick and thin, and has taught me a lot about color, art and life.
The sock is worked cuff to toe, with a slipped-stitch heel flap. As with many fair isle socks, the leg will be snug.
