Fallen Embossed Leaves Finished

While waiting for the August Sock Innovation KAL, (a Ravelry link) sock patterns to be announced, I worked in a pair of Mona Schmidt Embossed Leaves.

Several readers mentioned in the comments that this is one of their favorite sock patterns and I can see why. Not only is it beautiful and fun to knit, but it's also easy to size.

The pattern has a three column purl ridge between the four sock motifs that can easily be reduced to two purls/56 stitches like I did or increased to fit a larger foot.

I thoroughly enjoyed every stitch of these socks watching the subtle color changes of the gorgeous colors.

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.
