Named for the architect credited with coining the term Art Deco, the Corbusier Socks are inspired by the architecture and ornamentation characteristic of the style. The lace pattern superimposed on a base of 1x1 ribbing echoes the strong vertical and diagonal lines often seen in the decorative elements of buildings of the era. The 1x1 rib that starts the cuff of the sock appears again on the top of the toe. The lace pattern is simple and straightforward, and it even looks nice from the wrong side!

Actual yarn usage will depend on the length of your foot. If you are making the largest size and/or have long feet, you might want to get an extra skein of yarn.

Finished foot circumference: 5.25 (7.75, 10.25) in./13.5 (19.5, 26) cm
Note: The stitch pattern on the leg and instep is very stretchy. Please take this into consideration when selecting a size.

The Ravelry download contains all three sizes. The original print pattern and the download available in the Interweave Online Store contain only the two adult sizes.
