These pretty ankle socks begin at the toe and feature a combination of lace and stripes in a contrasting colour through the length of the sock. A German short row heel is worked and the lace pattern continues around the leg of the sock ending with a choice of either a fold over lace cuff or a plain rib cuff.

Any sock weight yarn can be used and it is a great opportunity to use up some of those little bits of leftover yarn for the contrast stripes.
