Basic Skills Necessary:

  • reading a chart is helpful, but written directions are also provided

Pattern Description:

Queen Alice was originally designed for Woolgirl's Alice in Wonderland Sock Club. As Alice's story begins in a daisy field, so too does this sock pattern. The cuff is made up of daisy stitches, and from here, the sock tumbles down the rabbit-hole, comprised of cables. But in Wonderland, everything is a bit different. And with these socks, the front and back are both a bit different too. Enjoy the journey!
