Embossed Leaves Started

The mail lady brought this yarn last Thursday and I immediately started thinking about what pattern to use.

By the time the Rick socks were finished on Saturday, I knew that a colorway named Fallen Leaves had to be knit with a leaf motif.

This yarn is so much prettier than my picture. I'll try to capture the colors better once the socks are done.

Pattern: Embossed Leaves Socks by Mona Schmidt in Winter 2005 Interweave Knits.

Yarn: Stalwart Sock from Slackford Studio. 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 4 Ply Fingering Weight Sock Yarn.

Color: Fallen Leaves

Needles: Options 2.5mm circulars.


  • Removed one of three purl columns separating the leaf motifs to make sock 60 stitches around.
  • Used a k1p2 ribbing so that the p2 continues into the p2 between the leaf motifs.
  • Knit my usual rounded toe instead of the star shaped decreases of the pattern.
