InstructionsDue to the very stretchy nature of the leg & instep lace pattern, these socks will fit a foot circumference of 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 inches, and a leg of up to 12 inches at the top of the cuff.
The cast on must also be very stretchy to match the stretch of the lace.

The "Giants Causeway" in the North Sea off the coast of Ireland - a unique formation of basalt columns.
What are you most proud of?
This pattern captures the wonder of the Causeway surrounded by the North Sea.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The lace pattern for the leg is in chart form only, it spirals around the leg. Make sure you use a very stretchy cast on.
