Pattern Details

Sample shown in color: Heathlands


These socks are knitted from the cuff down to the toe. They begin with the stretchy and not-so-common Picot Cast-On for a neat edge. The cuff is worked in 1x1 Twisted rib stitch for elasticity. The leg uses an easy-to-memorise and engaging lace pattern. The heel flap is worked in Stocking stitch to keep it thin enough for warmer weather. After decreasing to create the gusset, work the foot, then finish the socks with the no-graft Short, Medium or Long Round Toe.
