NEW: As of December 2013 this pattern is also available as a toe-up pattern. You will receive both the cuff-down and toe-up version when you purchase this pattern.
This is a variation of the standard lattice pattern, with the intersecting parts of the cable wrapping around each other. For me, this pattern evokes images of the fresh green shoots of spring plants growing and wrapping around each other, as well as the many ways we as people are intertwined with those around us creating friendships, families and memories.
The pattern instructions are provided for two sizes, womens medium and large. Where the instructions differ, the instructions for the large size are provided in brackets ( ). Two sets of charts and written instructions are provided, one for each size. The intertwining lattice pattern is repeated on the front and back of the socks.
The cables in this pattern are simple 1/1 cables. You may wish to cable without a cable needle for a faster knitting experience.
