Crocus Socks feature a floral lace pattern that brings to mind the first flowers poking up out of the earth in early spring, and reaching toward the sun on delicate stems. The sock is knit from the toe up and includes a forked short row heel that provides a roomier heel cup than a traditional short row heel. The lace pattern flows neatly into a twisted rib cuff. The lace pattern is mirrored for the second sock so that the socks are symmetrical.
