Patternfish - Autumn Breezes by Sarah Franklin

"My favorite things about fall are the cool breezes and watching the leaves change colors," says Franklin. "Fall also means that it is time to break out the socks to keep my feet warm on cool evenings. These socks capture all that I love about fall. They feature a falling leaf motif, a simple cable, and color that reminds me of all the autumn leaves." In this very pretty design Franklin uses an unconventional 'cable' technique (terribly easy to work) that does not require the use of a separate cable needle, and an eye-of-partridge heel for even more stitch interest. Lovely and fun to work.
