Little Flower Socks

I finished The Little Flower Socks for a Little Flower girl............I don't know for wich little flower girl because I have none. I wanted to knit these but didn't think it was a pattern for me. So I knitted them in size 29 (childrens size 12???) It was a nice and simple pattern and a really quick knit.

I did change it a bit because I don't like socks wich will come down.

So I knitted the top as 1k, 1p. and than a piece with the little flowers wich you can turn over. I knitted them toe-up.

Now wait and see wich girl wants to wear them...........

Well, my LFS found a Lovely LFG named Arwen.............-->
It was just the next day that someone said " yes, I want them for my great-grandchild" and the socks arrived with Arwen a week later.
And I got this picture of this lovely LFG.

I love how you changed the cuff. That extra touch makes an already pretty pattern even nicer.

I love the little little flowery cuff. I'm doing toe up also, so maybe I'll steal your idea. I also like the little bit of color you added to set off the cuff.

Marianne,YOU are so clever! As I scrolled down I sqaw your little flower-girl socks and thought... perfect for white, then I noticed the color and scrolled down some more and saw the cuff ! I think they are just darling. I bet you have little girls fighting over them and have to knit another pair or two. I am going to "borrow from the best" and use your cuff idea. Also, welcome to the group.
