Bells On Her Toes
Remember those lace-edged anklets you had when you were 8? These are a grown-up version. The Bells On Her Toes Socks are knit in the round from the top down. They feature a ruffled and ribbed cuff which can be worn pulled up with a flare at the top or folded down. The smooth stockinette foot makes these good to wear with shoes or boots, but they also make cozy, comfortable house or bed socks.
The majority of the sock is knit in either rib or stockinette, making it a very quick, easy knit. Detailed instructions are included for the Eye of Partridge heel flap, which is especially comfortable for those with wider feet. For a more narrow heel, a plain or slip-stitch ribbed flap could easily be substituted. (Instructions for alternate heel flaps are not included.)
As of September 2015, the pattern has been updated to include an additional pattern for Glockenspiel socks, the same pattern adapted for fingering weight yarn. Bonus instructions are included for the matching Glockenspiel Wristwarmers.
