Sock of Roses – Part 4

The time has come to finish our summery socks which we have been knitting together for the past two weeks. We have finally come to the romantic roses and what could be better than that? I hope you have had as much fun with this pattern as I have and that, through the Rose Socks, you have had the chance to reminisce about summerpromenades along the beach, your senses alive with fresh sea breezes and dazzling rose bouquets.

Part 4 consists of an elegant two-color pattern that ends with two-color ribbing and a very elastic bind-off edge. In this section, you can choose which cuff measurement you want to knit!

NOTE: Make sure that you choose the cuff pattern which matches the circumference of your leg where the cuff will be. Be careful not to knit too tightly when working the stranded knitting pattern. Try on the sock to make sure it goes over your heel/ankle.
