Like many buildings, Facade Socks have a decorative front for the world to see. One portion of the front design is used on the back of the leg, creating a lacy rib pattern. Sized for a woman’s medium foot, they are worked cuff-down and have a flap heel with eye of partridge and rib pattern below the back leg pattern.
The front and back of the cuffs and legs use different patterns. Once the patterns are set, the knitting is straightforward; however they are not recommended for new sock knitters.
There is a “p2” missing in the gusset section. It should be :
“Continuing from where you finished the leg, p2 and then work the next round (1 or 9) across the instep.”
