Gorgeous, toe-up socks showcase the simplicity of stockinette. A twisted cable runs up the outside of each leg, and the pair is finished with delicate lace which will poke out from the top of your boots! Calf shaping is done in an unusual way and fits the leg perfectly. The 3-page PDF includes both a chart and written instructions for the lace edging, as well as details on knitting the sock to fit your leg length.

Women’s Small (8 inch ankle) and Large (10 inch ankle).
