With Big Girl ease built in to accommodate shapely ankles and calves, these grown-up-yet-girlish cuffed socks in
three sizes give you a little extra sass below the knee. This pattern cleverly uses three needle sizes for different
design details. Start with the biggest needle for the short-rowed lace cuff in contrasting yarn, then change to smaller
needle for upper leg ribbing and smallest needle for the ankle, heel, and foot. Beads give your feet just a bit of bling,
and knitting them is easy as pie.

Bead Requirements: 56 size 5 triangle beads or size 6 seed beads. Sample socks used size 5 rococo silver-lined chartreuse triangle beads from Earth Faire.
