NOTE: In the pattern, where I say to disregard row 1, I mean row one (the ‘no stitch’ row) of the charted pattern – I made the chart one row too long. The written pattern is correct as written. Sorry for any confusion!
I’ve been working on a little personal challenge – my socks are wearing out (they’re handknit so they are all a few years old) and I needed some more. The socks I like, however, are little. Ankle socks. With lace….lots of lace! Of course, as it usually is when one has something definite in mind – I couldn’t really find a pattern I liked for it’s style and pattern.
So – I decided to design some. These are the first and I’ve made the pattern available as a pdf; The Little Summer Lace Socks
They fit really nicely since the lace gives them stretch. The edge sits just below the ankle.
I designed the lace by modifying an existing pattern, “String of Beads” from the book “Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls” by Martha Waterman.
Enjoy, I know I am
