One of my favourite things in my garden is Clematis Montana. It twines around our front door, creating a glorious spectacle as it mingles with a deep red rose. Montana awakes from its winter sleep in the middle of spring and when I see those fat buds starting to form, for me it signals the beginning of summer.
This toe-up sock has a panel of leaves growing up from the toe, up the foot and front of the leg, with flower buds appearing as the pattern moves into the leg. These leaves are bordered on both sides with dainty cables. The back is plainer and has a mid-section of rib to pull the fabric in, above an Eye of Partridge and cable heel flap. It makes use of Cat Bordhi’s Riverbed Architecture, which is reproduced here with Cat’s kind permission.
Please note that although this pattern has a lot of pages, that is because there are different charts for each size, so you will be able to only print the pages you need.
