This pattern is a 60 stitch toe-up sock made with a short row toe and heel. If the short row toe/heel isn’t your thing, it is easy to replace both bits with your preferred method. The toe and heel do not affect the pattern.
The pattern is inspired by Diatom’s Honeybee Socks. The bee lace is adapted from Barbara Walker’s 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns. p273, Honeybee Pattern With Faggoting.
