Designed with Margaret Ruble (Ravelry: senjiva), these socks are named after the Sanskrit word for bamboo shoot -- the glorious Lemongrass colorway is a reminder that summer will soon be here. Featuring a linen stitch heel, a leafy lace pattern up the front and several bamboo-like stitch motifs, not to mention what we call "the dragon toe," these socks are well-suited for summer sandal time.
(The dragon toe is a leaf-like lace shape over the big toe: let your fun summer toenail polish peep through! At the time of writing, Shannon's sporting jade green toenails, for example).
8 sts and 14 rounds = 1 inch in linen stitch
7 sts and 10 rounds = 1 inch in stocking stitch in the round
