From the designer:
I was inspired to design these socks after hearing of the Hawthorn trees in Ireland. Also known as the Whitethorn, it's a very common native tree, but it is steeped in legend and folklore. They are sometimes called fairy trees and according to tradition it is very bad luck to cut one down or to disrespect a Hawthorn in any way. I loved imagining these gnarly branched trees covered in their bright May blooms, commanding silent respect from passersby and locals even today.
This pattern was designed for knitting socks toe-up, but can be easily adapted to knitting cuff-down.
