Sock recipe for lacy toe-up socks

Taking a Shetland lace stitch, Print o’ the Wave, and transferring this to in the round knitting, this recipe will give a pair of delightful lace socks. If you love socks and you love lace, you’ll just love these.

This is not a whole sock pattern, but rather a recipe to be supplemented with your favourite toe and heel. I prefer using short-row toe and heel constructions. A fabulous one can be bought on Ravelry for US $ 1.00 from the Sox Therapist:

This is a recipe for making socks which requires some knowledge on sock construction and your preferred sizing.
Some hints on sizing are given, based on my gauge and sock size.

The recipe gives hints and additional information that can be ignored if you use a different toe and / or heel construction or do not need a mini-gusset with the FLK heel.

Please note: this pattern is not recommended for beginners, both in lace and in sock knitting. It does require some experience in reading your lace as well as in transferring stitches at the beginning and end of some rows.

It has been pointed out that the recipe might be misleading. Please make sure you have read and understood all notes and hints, especially the transfer of stitches, as the pattern doesn’t match up otherwise. I’d also like to point out that this recipe only covers one case of switching from instep to leg pattern at this point.

A great thank you goes to my partners in dance from the Sock Knitter’s group 2015 Sock Hop:
