Summer is in full swing! Take a break from the heat for a quick knit.

There are 2 versions of socks to knit in this pattern. The lacy anklets are very pretty and take no time at all. The lace is intuitive, don’t let it intimidate you. The striped lace version is more fun, pick a solid and a speckled in bright colors for some summery stripes. The lace portion is short and then its all stripes.

The pattern is written for circular needles knitting magic loop style but easy to adapt if you prefer dpns. The socks are knit from the cuff down and the lace is charted only.
