These easy going cuff down socks are just perfect for using up those tiny balls of left over sock yarn, even those highly variegated ones, that you are never quite sure what to do with!

The simple two row repeating lace pattern, is both written and charted and the ‘ribbed’ nature of the pattern makes getting a good fit effortless.

The pattern is written in five sizes, to cater from older children to the man in your life. Dare I say these socks would make fantastic thrifty knitted gifts!

The socks are available in five sizes:
To fit finished foot circumference: 16.25 cm /6.5 in, 19 cm / 7.5 in, 21 cm/ 8.25 in, 23 cm / 9 in, 25 cm / 9.75 in.
To fit foot circumference: 18.25 cm / 7.25 in, 21 cm / 8.25 in, 23 cm / 9 in, 25.5 cm / 10 in, 27 cm/ 10.5 in.

The pattern has been tech edited and test knit, please check out the other projects to see just how differently other people have used their leftovers. Some have used only one skein of variegated or striped yarn. Whilst others have combined a solid colour with variegated for stunning results.

Now you can truly indulge your sock knitting passion, using every last scrap of yarn (and not a sock yarn blanket insight).

I would love to see your finished socks over in my Ravelry Group
