The sugar glaze on cozy pastries that I so enjoy in the fall and winter inspired the lace detail on these socks. This pattern has enough stockinette to make these socks perfect travel or conversational knitting, and the simple lace detail keeps this project interesting.

This sock design is worked primarily in simple stockinette, but it has a lace detail that aligns with and runs smoothly from the twisted rib cuff down the side of the leg and foot, stopping when the toe decreases begin.

The pattern is written cuff-down with both charted and written instructions.
