Cats in the Garden Socks (cuff down)

Cats in the Garden socks are stranded colorwork socks that are knit cuff down. They have a ribbed heel. Inspired by my cats who love the garden, these socks would be a fun gift for cat lovers. While the socks are shown in fall colors, they look good in spring and summer colors.

The pattern instructions are clear and easy to work with, taking all the stress out of knitting colorwork socks. The pattern features detailed written instructions and complete charts.
