Inspired by my years of living in Savannah, Georgia, these top-down socks use a leafy lace pattern, traditional heel, and garter stitch details to evoke the beauty of the Live Oak-lined streets of one of my favorite Southern cities. Dragonfly Fiber's richly colored "Spanish Moss" colorway makes a beautiful compliment to the textured lace pattern. Continuing from the leg, the lace pattern sweeps in mirror-image panels across each instep. Lace is charted only.
