The Les Socks are the sassy sister of the Lyne socks and perfect for summer wear. Worked from the top down, they begin with a fun, but simple, bobbled cuff and a textured lace ribbing is featured on the instep. Instructions are included for a basic heel flap and gusset. A slightly rounded toe is worked at the end, and the toe is grafted closed with the kitchener stitch.
