Pattern Description:

Two patterns in one set: socks and fingerless gloves!

I am always drawn to the wonderful ways water flowsin this case with force, straight up. The lace stitch on the foot and back of hand for these pieces has plenty of movement and style, but is remarkably simple to work.

The socks are worked from the toe up, starting with a figure-8 cast on. The lace panel is worked over the top of the foot, with stockinette stitch on the sole. A gusset and short-row heel cup form the heel. The lace panel is repeated on the back of the leg and continues from the foot up the front.

The mitts have the lace on the back of the hand only, with a thumb gusset accented by yarnovers for an extra touch of femininity.
