The Temira Socks are a bit of fun and sass. The pattern of open lacework mimcs a cable. Carried down the top of the foot, the pattern is delicate enough for dress socks, but rogue enough for every day. This pattern lends itself well to lightly variegated yarns, semi-solids, and solids. Boldly variegated yarns may not work as well with the lace pattern.

This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice knitter. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
