What was your inspiration?
Celebrating St. Patrick's day and Springtime - shamrocks and the promise of faith. Legend has it that St. Patrick used the shamrock to communicate the doctrine of the Trinity. The three leaves combine to make a single plant, just as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost combine to make the holy Trinity.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Cuff is sideways knitted in garter stitch; remainder of sock is knitted conventionally in the round. A knit-woven spot stitch pattern decorates heel flap and band at toe.
