These lace socks feature two Celtic lace patterns, with the name coming from the Gaelic “ceilidh” (pronounced kay-leigh) meaning a social gathering, usually with entertaining and dancing. The large lace panel which extends down the front of the sock looks similar to the lace-up pattern of traditional irish dancing shoes for girls. Three smaller complimentary lace cable panels run up the back of the leg.

The foot length may be customized by adding rounds of stockinette before beginning toe decreases.

Revised/updated pattern as of 09/22/2013: These have been re-knit, re-tested and re-tech-edited, with expanded sizing range.
