Hawaiian quilts are characterized by simple yet bold motifs which are inspired by flora and animals native to the islands. The lace in this sock reminds me of those quilts, something simple yet bold.

Sock is knit cuff down starting with a decorative ribbing. The heel flap/gusset features ribbing and an eop heel. The lace continues down the instep tapering down to the center and ends with a decorative wedge toe.

Sock may be knit smaller using a smaller needle and gauge.

Pattern originally designed for TheKnitter.com SOTM Club, October, 2010.

Sample sock is knit with Meilenweit Tweed (420m/100g) #137. Yarn in kit is a different color.
