The wonderfully textured leg of this easy, quick-to-knit top-down sock leads to a little surprise on the insteps: charming butterfly motifs worked with basic knits and purls. Choose a knit or purl background, or one of each; add crystals or metallic thread at the ends of the attenae for a bit of bling; or simply work the instep in plain Stockinette.

GAUGE: 8 sts/in in Stockinette
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 7.5” (8”, 8.75”) foot circumference, unstretched.

Note, size Large may require an additional skein of yarn depending on the length of the leg and foot. The pattern is very stretchy, however, so be sure to keep that in mind and check the indicated finished measurements when determining your size.

This pattern has been professionally tech edited, test knit, and graphically produced.
