Down the Garden Path

My first non-free pattern! It was a big decision to decide to offer a pattern for sale, but I felt that the time had come. There is an amount of time, effort and money that goes into getting a design to the written form and I felt that the time might have come for some compensation for that. I also saw it as a way to make some dollars for MND Victoria with half the purchase price going directly to them.

So without further ado - Down the Garden Path!

Take a wander down the garden path on a gorgeous summer’s day. Lift every leaf and look under every rock because you never know what you might find underneath. The garden is full of surprises this time of the year and so are these socks. Follow the bumpy, cobblestone path down your leg to see the surprise visitor underneath!

In the cool shade lurks a snail, happy and content out of the bright summer’s sun.

These shorter-than-normal socks are perfect for cooler days and breezy summer evenings. Choose from the three suggested yarns shown in the three sock shots! If you want them longer simply increase the number of pattern repeats.

These fit an average woman’s foot.
