Hearts, Lace - what’s not to Love??

There comes a time when only pretty pink socks with hearts on will do. And this is that time!

This delicate pattern features lacy hearts stacked on top of each other, bordered by reverse stocking stitch that narrows down to a point just above the toes. The 1x1 rib continues this design feature on the back of the socks with ribbing coming to a point partway down the leg.

The pattern is a dainty, quick to knit, 12 row repeat with a honey comb slip-stitch heel. It is a top down/heel flap design and you can, of course, substitute a heel or toe of your choice. Adjustments can be made to the leg and foot length – ensure that you check your foot length and work the correct amount of foot repeats.

The yarn is a hard wearing superwash that is easy to care for, but any other yarn that gets gauge will look just as good!
