Lala Socks are adorned with botanical lace and twisted stitches. They come in three sizes, the foot is adjustable in length. The socks are worked from the top down in the round and finished with a traditional heel flap and gusset. The cuffs are knitted in twisted ribbing, then some of twisted stitches columns are extended and incorporated in the lace pattern throughout the legs and instep. Lace pattern goes smoothly into the heel flap. The soles are knitted in stockinette stitch. The leafy lace pattern looks intricate but is easy to knit in the round. Lala socks are knit in fingering weight yarn. They are perfect to wear on the chilly mornings while sipping a favorite warming tea and enjoying the magical wintry time.
