I love looking through stitch dictionaries in my spare time. I have even been known to leave one or two in the bathroom.
When I came across this lace pattern I knew it would make a lovely sock. In the book it is a ten-stitch repeat. That works well for a sixty-stitch sock, but what about larger sizes? By altering the scale of the pattern I was able to design a sock in a multiple of sizes without changing the integrity of the design.
