I found this lace pattern in a Japanese stitch dictionary and just had to use it in a pair of socks! The pattern reminded me of a wheat chain link bracelet design. When worked in a neutral or dark-color yarn and in the larger size, it would make a great pair of men’s socks. These socks are worked toe-up with a reverse heel-flap heel and a center-sole gusset. The gusset placement allows the sock to fit more snugly at the arch than traditionally constructed socks. To ensure a good fit, accurate measurement is needed before starting the gusset increase section.
