Made from wicking, lightweight bamboo with just enough wool for some elasticity, the Lacy Spring Socks are a great warm-weather sock. These socks were actually inspired by a commercial for rheumatoid arthritis medication, if you can believe it. They feature a lace front with a stockinette back. The lace pattern is simpler than it appears and is fairly easy to memorize. The instructions for the lace are both written and in chart form.

The construction of these socks is a very traditional top-down construction, making them an easy sock for beginners or anyone who wants a simple project to work on at picnics or in the car. For a quicker project, these socks would make cute anklets!

The Lacy Spring Socks are very stretchy and will stretch to fit a 9” foot circumference. If the gauge swatch or cuff is too large, try using a yarn with more wool content for a snugger fit.
