Art Nouveau Rose Socks

from Dawn Brocco
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Art Nouveau Rose Socks
Art Nouveau Rose Socks

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, inc, dec, stranded colorwork, duplicate stitch

Pattern Description:

The inspiration for this sock design was a motif in a book of circa 1900 corner and border designs, which were used by printers at the time!

The rose motif accentuates the heel flap, making the socks ideal for wearing with clogs.

I used a diced pattern as the background for the heel motif, but you may just use a solid colored ground, like the olive, for a less cluttered look.

This heel motif may be knit in or duplicate stitched later - your choice! You may also leave the rose off the heel flap, as in the Winter Roses above.

I knit the 4 colorways in SandnesGarn's Peer Gynt, a great, DK wt. Norwegian wool yarn.

Pattern has large color charts, for easy following.


24 sts & 28 rnds = 4" (10 cm) over charted pattern with size 3 (3.25 mm) ndls, and 26 sts and 38 rnds = 4" in circular st st with size 2 (2.75 mm) ndls, or sizes to give gauges.
