The Larkspur Lane Socks are knit in the round from the top down. They feature a ribbed lace cuff and matching accents at the gussets. The lace rib pattern is easily memorized, with a 4-stitch, 4 row repeat. The smooth stockinette foot makes these good to wear with shoes or boots, but they also make cozy, comfortable house or bed socks.

Detailed instructions are included for the Eye of Partridge heel flap, which is especially comfortable for those with wider feet. For a more narrow heel, a plain or slip-stitch ribbed flap could easily be substituted. (Instructions for alternate heel flaps are not included.)

Yarn shown: Cascade 220, 100% Peruvian highland wool, 220 yd / 200 m, color 2422 (lavender).

Skills: Knit, purl, knitting in the round, following a simple lace pattern, short rows, picking up stitches, grafting.

Notes: Photos show Adult Small on woman’s size 8 foot.
