elua / Leila Raven

A feathery twisted stitch motif is the basis for Leila's pretty Tern socks, originally part of Quince Quarterly's winter 2020 offering. Worked from cuff to toe, the tiny rib-like elements come together so perfectly with a slipped-stitch heel flap and a stockinette sole for comfort.
