A standard-length sock with a clever bit of color work around the calf. Duplicate stitch is worked after completing the sock to create the stem and leaf. Sock is worked cuff-down with a heel flap and short row turned heel.
This pattern was originally designed for the Hazel Knits August 2012 Sock Club.
