I love Colorado, more specifically the mountains and the evergreen trees. I thought it was very important to design a pair of socks with that evergreen texture to remind me of the place and plant I love the most!
This pair of socks has a lace pattern reminiscent of evergreen trees, it has a slip stitch heel flap and gusset, and a bit of shaping in the toe before you Kitchener it shut. Not a bad sock for beginners ready to try lace, or more advanced knitters will find it simple, yet interesting.
