Lupin Socks

Lupin Socks


Grab a handful of beautiful Lupins with these distinctive socks. Worked from the cuff down the leg seamlessly in the round. A pretty lupin-inspired motif adorns the leg down to the textured heel. Then worked in the round again from gusset to toe-end and finally grafted to completion using the Kitchener method. These are a fun challenge and so rewarding to look at. Here’s to floral knits!
