I designed the Ashill Socks on a bit of a whim, I wanted to knit something a wee bit pretty, that wasn't overly complicated, and this lacy leaf panel looked like just the ticket. The rest of the sock is plain, which I always appreciate either side of a lace chart.
The lace is both written out, and charted, and it really isn't difficult. The socks are knit cuff down, because I just cannot resist the fun of turning a heel.
The socks below were the originals, and I LOVE them, however they didn't photograph as well as I would have liked for pattern photos, hence the lighter, brighter pair!
The Ashill Socks are named after an area in Ireland where my Ancestors were, and travelled to New Zealand from. The area was named for the Ash trees in the area. Perhaps I should have kept my Green, Irish inspired socks to release on St Patricks day!
You can check out my testers pairs in the projects page of the pattern on Ravelry, I know some have linked already, and the rest will follow shortly :)
You can purchase the pattern for yourself, and knit yourself a pretty pair of Ashill Socks, either via the Ravelry page, or directly here for $4.50 US
