Evighet are a pair of fingering-weight toe-up socks with a delicate and timeless stitch pattern that resembles long-forgotten pressed flowers I found between the pages of an old diary. Although faded and wilted, seeing the flowers transported me back in time to the very day I picked them.


A stockinette toe gradually transforms into a stitch pattern with tiny buds surrounded by wavy twisted stitch columns. The heel flap is worked in a variation of twisted ribbing, morphing seamlessly into the main stitch pattern and flowing beautifully into a short twisted-rib cuff.


Evighet socks come in three sizes: 62, 66, and 70 stitches. Right and left socks are identical and can be knit two at a time. 


Both written and charted instructions are given for the stitch pattern. The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology.
