The Astrid socks were created for and named after my mother. Since her birthday is around the first day of spring, the small colorwork motif on the leg resembles a floral border. Additional sprinkles of color on the cuff, heel flap and toe add to the playful look.


This sock design is worked cuff down and contains a few rounds of simple colorwork. The rib pattern throughout the whole sock ensures a comfortable fit. The heel is worked in a classic Eye of Partridge heel flap and gusset construction. The original sample was knitted with two colors but the design can easily be adapted to using several different colorways. This makes the design a great project for using up leftover yarns.
