Flower Buds

With a neat little maneuver done once every fourth round-- not involving cabling, but slipped and yo stitches instead-- Wardrop introduces a lovely little pattern that really does look like flower buds. In a strongly variegated yarn, as shown here, the effect is subtler; in a more consistent value and colour, it would stand out gloriously. As is her usual way, Wardrop suggests you make these toe-up socks two at once, on two circular needles, and provides instructions to do so. But until you're comfortable with it, by all means do one at a time.
