Bijou Socks

One of the definitions of “bijou” is jewel or trinket, small and elegant. That’s how I think of the little stitch pattern in these socks. It’s just a little trinket, but it makes for an elegant pattern.

I love knitting socks that look beautiful, like a jewel, but without having to concentrate and fuss over a complicated stitch pattern or chart. These fit the bill to perfection!
