3505 Euphyllia Lace Socks (e-pattern)
Skill Level: Intermediate Knitting
The Euphyllia Lace socks by Debra Kinsey Knits look great knitted in a solid colour, a speckle or a colour fade, so grab a skein out of your stash and get knitting!! These socks have a moving eyelet pattern set in panels of stocking stitch separated by purl stitches. The pattern extends around the leg and continues down the front of the foot. When the sock is worn, the lace detail stretches out over the leg and foot; it is very eye-catching and pretty. The instructions are for working in rounds on double-pointed needles, but alternatively the magic-loop method may be used if preferred. These socks are knitted from the cuff down, with a slipped-stitch heel flap for durability. The lace pattern is worked over an 8-stitch, 16-round repeat from charted or written instructions.
The socks come in 3 sizes Small (37-38), Medium (39-40) & Large (41-42)
Leg length from ankle approx 18 (19, 20) cm /7 (7½, 8) ins
Foot length approx 21 (23, 25) cm /8¼ (9, 9¾) ins
These measurements may be adjusted but be aware that you may need more yarn if length is added to the leg or foot.
