Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “For these pretty, casual socks, the designer works the leg sideways in a lace edging pattern that she “borrowed” from an antique dresser scarf, then grafts the live stitches to the cast-on edge to form a tube. The yarn contains a small amount of elastic that gives a remarkably comfortable fit.“

Finished Size: About 7½“ (19 cm) around foot and 9” (23 cm) long from heel to toe, relaxed; stretches easily to accommodate 8” (20.5 cm) around and 10” (25.5 cm) long. To fit women’s US shoe sizes 6½ to 9.

Yarn: Cascade Fixation (98.3% cotton, 1.7% elastic; 186 yd (170 m)/50 g): #2625 navy, 2 balls.

Yarn weight: #3 - Light

Gauge: 30 sts and 48 rows = 4” (10 cm) in St st, after relaxing off the needle for 24 hours.

Needles: Size 5 (3.75 mm): Set of 4 or 5 double-pointed (dpn) and pair of straight (optional) for working lace pattern. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: A few yards of waste yarn; marker (m); tapestry needle; crewel or other sharp-pointed large-eyed needle.
