design by Gryphon Corpus
The base pattern of these socks is the castle wall, embowered wherein lies the fair Sleeping Beauty, a.k.a. your delicate foot. They’re worked toe-up with a short row heel and are quite simple. Then, to protect your princess from marauders as she sleeps, you’ll embroider her castle all over with a climbing rose vine, complete with tiny knitted leaves and rosebuds and crocheted roses in full bloom. Don’t be alarmed, the embroidery and crochet are not complicated and are fully explicated for uninitiated.
