Afternoon Tea

$5.00 USD

How delightful is this colorway? Believe it or not, it is named “Unbirthday Party” from Potion’s Yarns. And when I found it, a memory was struck, and I was instantly transported back to the mad hatter’s tea party from Alice in Wonderland, which happens to be one of my favorite childhood classic books.

Ta-da, that’s where this sock pattern inspo came from!

Perfect for intermediate-level knitters, this toe-up and cuff-down sock pattern features a classic lace and cable motif that runs up the front of the sock. This pattern is incredibly easy to substitute your favorite heel for, so no matter your knitting preferences, you can knit a pair that you’ll love!
