~silver fern sock pattern~

Introducing….. my first sock design!

I’ve named it “Silver Fern” after that iconic symbol of New Zealand, but you can knit it in any colour you like of course! 

It has a trailing fern-like design front and back, and  a lace rib panel at the sides.  The lace rib is quite stretchy, so although the pattern is for a women’s medium foot, it does accommodate a wide range of foot sizes.  It fits my size 9 (Euro40) foot and even my son’s size 4 as pictured!

They are knitted from the top down, and the pattern is charted, with the fern design extending into the toe as a finishing touch.  I used hand-dyed Patons Patonyle, but you could use any sock/fingering yarn that gives you a gauge of 8 sts/inch using 2.25mm needles.  For those wanting to knit a pair, I’ve made the pattern available for purchase on Ravelry for $4 USD.  Isn’t Ravelry just great?

Overall I’m really happy with the way the design has come together, and I hope lots of other knitters feel the same!
