What was your inspiration?
My inspiration was to have a classy sock that could be worn with dress shoes. I think you will love these as a practical fashion alternative for warmth and wearability when you want a pretty cover-up.
What are you most proud of?
Classics like this live on. And I hope you enjoy seeing and knitting this pattern, as well as the wearing.
Tailored twisted-ribbing lace patterns enhance the leg portion and becomingly conform to the shape of your calf. Then plain twisted-ribbing continues onto the foot to comfortably hug ankle and arch.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Dont be too intimidated by the seemingly complicated-looking stitch pattern. It actually is quite repetitive and easily read after youve got a few rounds of the pattern underway.
Some other features that you will appreciate are
~ the way the twisted-ribbing lace patterns decrease in pattern to becomingly conform to the shape of your calf
~ there is a gusset underneath the foot that allows the stirrup to comfortably hug instep and arch
