Mother ~ Daughter Lace Socks
Designed exclusively for Spirit Trail Fiberworks by Bess Haile.
What a great gift for a mother and daughter! Because lace doesn’t use as much yarn as other types of knitting, you can easily get a pair of adult and child socks out of an average skein of sock yarn; about 400 yards.
Or, if needed, adult socks could be sized up to fit a very large foot or leg by adding an extra knit stitch on either side of each pair of decreases. Likewise, the socks can be sized down to fit very slender feet and legs by using the lace chart in the child’s sock pattern. However, a larger sock may not leave enough yarn for the child’s version.
