This sock pattern was written for double pointed needles and has instructions for a Medium sized sock only - 64 stitches.

This is a cuff down sock pattern, worked in one piece, from the cuff down to the toe. Casting on requires using a stretchy cast-on method. The cuff of the socks is knitted first, before moving onto the leg, the heel, the gusset, then the foot and finally finishing on the toe. Kitchener stitch is used to close the stitches at the toe.

Instructions for the leg, gusset and foot of these socks are provided in both written and charted format. However, instructions for the cuff, heel and toe are written only.

These socks would be ideal for intermediate sock knitters who would like to try adding a festive themed lace pattern to their socks. The design for these socks was inspired by the holiday season. I wanted a festive lace pattern design that would instantly make everyone think of that most wonderful time of the year. My candy cane lace pattern is a very straightforward pattern to follow - it is an 8-stitch pattern repeat and the size of this sock can easily be adapted to a larger or smaller size.
I’m also hoping to help knitters understand how cuff down socks with a traditional gusset develop with this very simple yet elegant sock pattern.
