The fourth sock in the ever growing TRIBUTE SERIES, the inspiration for this sock is Primrose Everdeen, also called Prim, the little sister of Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins. Named for a delicate flower with heart shaped petals, she is the only person in the world that Katniss knows she loves unconditionally...The only person in the world for which she would sacrifice everything.
The word “prim” is often used to describe a someone who is very proper, tidy, and in most instances, a perfect lady. Primrose herself is a very ladylike, delicate character, and I wanted to reflect this in the shaping and design of this sock. It is a knee high sock, much like those worn by young school girls in 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. The cuff and leg patterning form heart shaped ridges much like the edges of the primrose flower. The lace and rib work together to create a very slim fitting sock that is both delicate and strong.
The sample is shown in Cephalopod Yarns, Skinny Bugga, which is now discontinued. A suitable substitute is shown below.
