Thomasina’s lace panels are simple enough to make it a quick knit while the heel and toe design add a little extra challenge. They are knit toe up with a wrap/turn short row heel. The large portions of stockinette and simple lace make this the perfect pattern to show off yarns with subtle color variations.

Techniques used include:

  • Toe up
  • Magic cast on for toe up socks
  • Reading a chart
  • Wrap and turn short row heel
  • Stretchy bind off
  • Stitches: Knit, purl, knit two together, knit two together through back loop, purl two together, make one, yarn over
