Fridas Roses


“My dear cousin Frida asked me some time ago if I wanted to make a sock pattern for her and I wanted to find some
on something that was both beautiful and interesting to knit. The result was this simple lace pattern of roses on the
the top of the foot, framed by braids on the sides and broken elastic on the bottom of the foot. The sock is knitted from
toe and up with heel wedge on long circular needle with Magic Loop technique but can also be worked with
stocking stuffers. Hope you will enjoy knitting them!” This is how Annelie Verbrugge, the designer of the socks, describes her pattern.
