Figheadh Yarnworks McGuiness Branch Socks PDF
The lace pattern of Figheadh Yarnworks McGuiness Branch Socks is reminiscent of a branch eddying ‘round stones on its merry way. Desginer Jen Hagan chose to name these socks after a branch that ran behind her grandparents’ home in Chambers County, Alabama. The site of many Easter Egg hunts and summertime play, its memory makes her happy, just like these socks. Knit them in the round on two circular needles or 5 DPNs with a classic round heel and grafted toe. Note: Lace pattern is both written and charted.
