I purchased this lovely Petals colorway for my 37th birthday because we all deserve a lovely treat on our birthdays. As a May baby, the flowers are just starting to come to bloom here in Edmonton, so Petals turned into my own little secret garden. ♥

Secret Garden – Worked in the round, Secret Garden contains both cuff-down and toe-up written directions and a chart for the pattern stitch. The pattern has instructions for an afterthought heel, but you may substitute whatever heel you enjoy using.
The pattern is written for the magic loop method for knitting socks; however, the design could be worked on double-pointed needles or mini-circulars instead should you prefer.
