This beautiful Paw Prints sock pattern has been created by Karen Butler Designs (who also produces Literally Yarn) and is available as an online download (VAT inclusive). Who could resist a pair of socks covered in paw prints. Fun to knit and wear, the pattern is interesting to look at too; the triple yarn overs take a paw step beyond simple lace knitting without being complicated.
The socks start with a provisional cast-on, allowing a picot edged cuff to be completed without sewing. Pattern layout options are included for both A4 and letter size papers. The pattern is downloadable in pdf format and can be viewed using Adobe pdf reader. A copy of this software is available athttp://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/.
