Ducks In A Row
The simple stitch pattern is reminiscent of the beautiful formations of ducks flying back in the spring; a true sign that warmer weather is to come. This pattern has customizable lengths, knit from the toe-up, and is constructed using a heel technique that does not require wraps-and-turns, a gusset, or a heel flap. The patterning pairs delicate cables (worked with or without a cable needle) together with a ‘wing’ stitch to create a beautifully detailed panel, mirrored for the right and left feet, that runs the length of the sock.
