FPS-v0809 Forest Park Socks (Cuff Down)

"Branches, vines and cables inspired by Portland's huge urban nature park," describes Gardiner. "The perfect sock for getting lost in the woods!" This design was introduced at Portland, Oregon's Sock Summit, 6 - 9 August 2009; to honour Gardiner (a Portland native) and the Summit, it is our 3500th published pattern. And it's a stunner: elaborate but not Beyond, gorgeous but not intimidating, with a patterned heel and beautifully-thought-out division between instep and sole. All stitch patterns are both charted and written out.
