Evelyn writes about the sock in the book:

“The lace pattern in these socks was inspired by a
collection of narrow embroidered flower ribbons. I always
start by charting several motifs, and it was a happy
surprise to see how the decreases curved the little lace
flowers into ribbons of roses that could alternate with
purl columns along the length of the socks. The simple
rose rib pattern repeats over 7 stitches and 8 rounds, so
it is easy to memorize. Once I decide on the lace pattern,
I have fun planning a top border for the cuff that will
flow seamlessly into the lace. However, the border in
this project is optional if you would prefer to have
uninterrupted lace panels running all the way to the top
of the sock.”
