Couplet is a top down, “his and hers” sock pattern, with instructions for two sizes and two options: one with lace at the calf and one without lace. The sample shown in the gold color is the “with lace” option in the smaller size. The final photo, of a sock in progress in brown yarn, shows the “without lace” option.
