Buffalo Beaded Socks

HeartStrings knitting pattern #A134

buffalo in Yellowstone Park

Buffalo down is a soft yet sturdy fiber worthy of pampering our feet. Add some beads and a pretty lace pattern, and you'll have a luscious pair of Buffalo Beaded Socks to treasure for traveling across the plains or anywhere.

To left — The old buffalo bull that led our procession down the road in Yellowstone Park; photo taken through car window as I drove by. Later the bull stopped to graze at side of road.

Of course, these socks can be made with yarn other than buffalo as used in this model. But if you want to try something new, here's your chance!
