fingering weight sock yarn
What was your inspiration?
I designed these lace socks to give the illusion of dimensionality. The lace pattern reminds me of the bellows on a concertina, a small accordion-like instrument that mesmerizes me. I love its happy music and wavelike rhythm as the bellows are pushed in and pulled out.
What are you most proud of?
The stitch pattern is scaled for 5 sizes for adult extra small through extra large, thereby maintaining the lovely placement of the pattern sections consistently throughout all sizes.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
225[275, 325, 375, 425] yards fingering weight yarn. 8 stitches/inch, size US 1 / 2.5 mm needles suggested. Shown in Nature's Palette 100% merino wool (50g/185 yard), 2 skeins color Medium Indigo. Pattern has both charted and written instructions.
