These socks were designed with colorful, self-striping sock yarn in mind. I wanted something that would lend interest but wouldn’t detract form the striping effect. This simple lace design is also great for beginners ready to try their first patterned socks.

NOTE I’ve had several knitters tell me that the US 2 (2.75mm) needles were too large and they sized down to US 1 (2.25mm) needles. My gauge has changed a lot over the last couple years and I’ve found myself sizing down as well. So please check your gauge before starting to knit!

For those who have asked, the sheep-cutout sock blockers are from The Loopy Ewe.
