What is more resilient than a blade of meadow grass in spring? The softness of plants gives them the flexibility to be resilient to wind and changes. Inspired by plant life, this pattern is a gentle, breezy lace sock in three sizes, with mix and match options of foldover picot cuff, half twisted rib, and shortie or full length options. 

May you wear it with joy and explode in growth, ever growing in your softness and resilience in difficult times and in good times in the ever more challenging world. 

Knit top down in the round. This pattern comes with two options, a full crew length with half-twisted rib cuff, and a shortie version with a foldover picot cuff. These options can be mixed and matched for a different cuff and length pairing.
