What materials did you use? fingering weight sock yarn: Shown in Tilli Tomas Artisan Sock Yarn, color Mist
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
