If it's cold and snowy outside, this is the perfect project to cuddle with. This socks are knit toe-up and feature an icy lace pattern which extends down the foot, decorative calf shaping and an unique heel construction.
One size, please go up/down on needle size to adjust leg and foot circumference. Length of foot, leg and calf position are adjustable.
Ankle length modifications
The pattern tells you to start the calf section after 9cm or as soon as the ankle is long enough to cover your leg up to the start of your calf increase. Please make sure to work the leg section until you reach that point to make sure your socks will be truly kneeheights.
I used almost the whole skein, after finishing just 2 grams were left over. If you've got very long legs you might eventually need to buy a second skein to be safe!
