Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.

This pattern includes both charts for the lace and the written instructions. There are also tutorial links included in the pattern for the crochet provisional cast on and for the twisted double decrease.

Sizes S(M)L

The medium size is based on average sizes and should fit most people. These socks are very, very stretchy so if you have a doubt about what size to pick, go with medium. The small size is for those with thinner than average legs (US size 4 and smaller) and the large size is for those with larger calves and feet (US size 16 and up). The fitted-to-you elastic cuff at the top of the sock keeps it up without a garter whatever your size.

Yarn
2(3)3 balls of Trekking Pro Natura

This pattern is unsuitable for thicker or denser sock yarn, you really need a strictly fingering weight yarn, sport weight will not do.
