Nothing is as graceful as lace. This toe-up lace sock covers the whole foot with Grace since the lace pattern starts from the tip of the toe.

Twisted-stitch tendrils lick flame-like at the edges of the foot, then blossom into vines that extend up the sides. This sock features a rounded toe and gusset/heel flap construction, my favorite construction for a really well-fitting sock.

The inspiration for this genteel sock came from the yarn, Plucky Knitter Primo, a merino/cashmere/nylon blend with a high percentage of cashmere, in the soft and subtle Narragansett Gray colorway.

This lucky skein plopped into my hands during Sock Summit 2011 and tortured my thoughts and dreams until this sock emerged. We should all be so lucky as to endure torture at the hands of beautiful sock yarn! I call this an act of Grace, don’t you?

ERRATA: The Instep Chart for the smaller size mistakenly shows the third stitch on rows 6, 7, and 8 as knit sts. They should be shown as purls.
