Evergrey Socks were designed to match Evergrey Mitts. The beautiful twisted-stitches-and-lace stitch pattern reminded me of a forest floor covered in fallen needles. The lace pattern looks intricate but is quite intuitive to execute.
The socks are knitted from the toe up in the round. The pattern features my favorite gusset-and-flap heel construction that doesn’t require picking up stitches. Right and left socks are mirror images of each other and can be worked two-at-a-time. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace pattern.
