Petals from Lofty loops was one of my yarny birthday presents for 2018. The color couldn’t possibly be any more perfect for me. The gentle pinks with speckles make me completely swoon. If you’re unfamiliar with Allison’s talents, I’d recommend checking her out!
Worked in the round, Secret Garden contains written directions and a chart for the pattern stitch. Directions are for both cuff-down and toe-up. If you feel inclined to make 2 in the same direction, that’s completely acceptable, or one of each if you’re feeling particularly topsy-turvy! Secret Garden features 4 sizes; Small, Medium, Large, & X-Large. You’ll also find a sock worksheet, so you know how to measure your foot to achieve a perfect fit. Secret Garden has directions 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 pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles instead.
