Lacey Socks – by Emily Foden
A simple and elegant sock knit in a lacy ribbed stitch. The sock is knit from the top down and features a tidy picot cuff and gusset heel. The lace pattern is easily memorised and enjoyable to knit. This is a good sock for knitters of most levels and very comfy when worn in bed as well as lounging around in slippers!
