Lapsang Souchong is a black tea originally from the Wuyi region of the Chinese province of Fujian. It is sometimes referred to as smoked tea. Lapsang is distinct from all other types of tea because lapsang leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pine wood fires, taking on a distinctive smoky flavour. - WikiTea

This sock pattern features a mix of lace and cables that artfully decorate the sock leg. The pattern also features a short row heel, simple patterning on the instep and a star toe which means no fussy grafting at the end.

Sizes are worked by adjusting gauge, for the S/M size you will want about 9.5/10 stitches to the inch, and for the M/L size about 8 stitches to the inch.

Please note that the photos with the yellow sample have a different toe than the one used in the pattern.
