  • firfir - Socks

    The firfir socks strike a delicate balance between playful and wearable - inspired by how flowers can turn our attention to them with their colors and shapes, the ruffles on these ankle-length socks mimic flower petals and the bobbles evoke flower buds.

    They are worked toe-up in stockinette with a gusset and short-row heel. The ruffle is worked separately and then knit together with the cuff which is completed with a picot edge. Bobbles are added afterwards with a crochet hook.
