Velvet Wreath - PDF Knitting Pattern
2-color cuff down socks with modified mosaic colorwork and a lace motif to match!
Modified mosaic knitting and lacework to match put me in mind of the holiday wreaths that adorn so many doors during the holiday season. And the rippled toes mimic the mounds of snow on a winters eve... the quintessential holiday socks!

These socks are written for the Magic Loop technique and are worked from the cuff-down. These socks are mirrors of one another; please be sure to follow charts and written instructions for the Left and Right sock.
Instructions are given for smallest size with additional sizes in parentheses. When only one set of instructions is given, it applies to all sizes.
Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
In the Colorwork portions of the socks, carry the colors loosely up the inside of the sock to avoid multiple ends to weave in and to save on yardage.
