Description from calendar:
These lacy socks offer a bit of ribbing for stay-up stretch while an easy four-row repeat pattern makes for an interesting knitting experience.

GAUGE: 15 sts = 2 inches in pattern st. (lace-rib stitch is stretchy, so this is approximate); 35 sts to 4 inches in stockinette.

NOTE: Often on the same sock you will find there are different gauges, especially when there are lace pattern stitches. So the tighter gauge was measured on the plain stockinette sole portion of the foot, and the looser gauge on the lace part. The lace-rib pattern is stretchy and forgiving.
