The lace pattern on this sock makes me think of a colonade edged with tufts of Pampas Grass. This is a very stretchy sock with a simple lace pattern based on twisted ribbing and mock cables. The sock is knit from the toe up with a wedge toe, traditional looking heel flap and gusset, and an invisible sewn bind off.
