This is my 5th sock pattern inspired by favorite book character, Miss Marple.

Named after the afternoon get together in the book Murder at the Vicarage, when the ladies of the village gossip over tea & scones.

The pattern is toe up using circular needles, the magic loop method. The lace is charted only but don’t be scared its an easy chart and once you’ve done a round or two, the pattern is easily memorized also the lace is only knit on the instep of the sock. Short row heel is included for the pattern but please feel free to substitute whichever heel you prefer.


There is a typo in the toe up section, the pattern should read you will have 52 (60) stitches on both needles.
