Duilleag means leaf in Scottish Gaelic, and green leaves are everywhere just now, including growing up from the toe to the cuff of these socks! Starting with a single leaf up the foot, then bringing in a second leaf up the leg, Duilleag is knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap. These socks are the perfect mix of relaxing knit and engaging pattern. With four widths and flexible length fitting, these are a great pattern for everyone.
Duilleag is the second pattern in my Four Seasons of Socks collection. You can either just straight in and buy the whole set in one go, or buy a single pattern and get a money off code so you can come back for the collection next time and still not pay more than the £14 maximum price!
The pattern is fully written and the lace is also charted so whichever way you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. You will also need to know how to do Judy’s Magic Cast-On and a stretchy bind off like Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off.
