These sock`s are named after my daughter Lola. Full of character and always daring to be different and refusing to fit in with the crowd, she immediately fell in love with these socks when she saw them in creation.

Lola`s socks are knitted in the round worked from the cuff down using the magic loop method (but can be knit with dpn´s). They have a 1x1 ribbed cuff with a slipped stich heel flap and gusset heel and use an easy (and slightly addictive!) repeating lace pattern panel which is worked along the top of the leg and foot. They can be worked in any style of sock yarn, one colour, striped, variegated or speckled.
