Copyright information: This pattern is free, and I restrict you from almost nothing. Enjoy knitting it, hand out copies to friends, use it for a class you’re teaching/attending, sell the socks you make, translate them to whatever language you want (in case of a translation, I’d be happy to convert it to pdf and put it up here for download - pm me)
The only thing I do not want you to do is to copy my pattern and sell it.

I dug through the pattern browser but couldn’t find any free pattern for lacy socks that I really liked, so I made up my own.*

Toe up construction using magic loop, can be adapted to dpns easily.
Easy lace repeat of just 4 rows, two of those four are plain knit so it’s a nice project for lace beginners.
German jojo-heel with doubled stitches instead of wrap and turn for the shortrows.

Total weight of both socks is 60 grams, the yardage calculation is based on the 60 grams.
If you have any problems with the pattern, please pm me! It’s my very first published pattern ever and I don’t think I’m perfect from the start.

Stitch pattern is from a german stitch dictionary “500 Strickmuster”, published 1984 by Xenos Verlagsgesellschaft.
