These socks were designed during a phase when I was obsessed with the Old Shale stitch and how it could be paired with sections of stocking stitch. The lace stitch goes down the back and front of the leg, stops at the heel on the back but carries on to the toe on the front.

The construction is a cuff down, and they come in 8 sizes from toddler, through womens and to mens sizes.

A pair of large mens socks can be made from one ball of 100g 4-ply/fingering weight sock yarn.
