Perfect summer socks. Ideal holiday project.
Mostly knit stitches but because of the beautiful and easily memorable pattern not boring at all.

The delicate pattern panel on the upper foot keeps your interest while knitting and looks very precious.
Twisted stitches wind around lovely eyelets formed by slipped stitches.

The instructions are fully written out and the pattern panel is also available as chart.
