Cuff down socks with a picot edge, lace/cable design cuff which folds down over a St. st. leg. Short row heel & St. st. foot. Very fun knit!
I used lace wt. yarn which is doubled throughout the pattern, substituting sock yarn (not doubled) will work just as well.

The pattern is both in written and chart form - knitter’s choice.

My designs are also available on individual blog posts (as seen below) where you can increase the size of the photos which may be useful in st. pattern definition or a very good look at the design. Or you may find pattern steps detailed; techniques explained; additional pattern notes and/or tips, etc., depending upon the pattern.

Yarn: 4 – 25 gr. skeins Crystal Palace Kid Merino yarn or 100 gr. of the sock yarn of choice

Needles: US size 2 (3-0mm) set of 5 dpns (or socknitting method of choice).
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain gauge.

Notions: darning needle, stitch holder, cable needle, stitch markers

Happy Knitting!
