Ice Cream Sunday Socks
These short summer socks are worked from the top down. The mesh-like pattern is based on a strangely twisted stitch called Veil Stitch from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker. The short-row heel uses the PGR method but with added mini-gussets to supply more stitches for the heel.
