Rite of Spring

The lovely sock above is the Rite of Spring Sock by Tess Mattos of Polar Bear Patterns. It was one of the patterns from my recently concluded lace club. (The pattern is now available for general purchase both in the FF shop and from Tess on Ravelry.)

Not only is this a beautiful sock pattern, but it has a fun twist: it's written to be customized with ease. You can knit the pattern just as written or you can mix and match the stitch motifs to create your own version.

This is Angela's version of the Rite of Spring Socks. She used FF Tight Twist Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Spellbound colorway.

In Angela's version, she added her own touch with an extra repeat of the beading after the cloverleaf eyelet panel and extra repeats of the little leaf stripe at the end. She also ended the foot with transition rounds and beading.

Lovely work! You can see more of Angela's work on her Ravelry project pages.

Great day to all!

I really like Angela's version--better than the original design, in fact! Way to go, Angela. :-D
