You belong among the wildflowers You belong somewhere close to me Far away from your trouble and worry You belong somewhere you feel free – Tom Petty
Wildflowers is one of my favorite songs by the late Tom Petty; it resonates with me. To be free, to be who we are, without the confinements of who society and social norms think we are “supposed” to be — appreciating our unique qualities. Being happy with who we are, without worry.

Wildflowers – Worked in the round, Wildflowers 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.
