Get ready for warmer weather with a light, airy knit! These lacy socks incorporate two different, yet complementary leaf patterns. The main lace panels on the front and back of the leg feature a triple leaf motif. A single leaf pattern trails down each side of the leg and onto the foot. Both motifs are 12 rows long, making it easy to keep track of your place in the pattern. Although only one size and 'configuration' is given in the pattern, you can easily adjust the size of the sock by using a smaller needle for a smaller sock. Or, if you want a larger sock, add an extra panel of the Triple Leaf chart to the back of the sock.

I prefer to design simple patterns that are (relatively) easy to knit. It might be redundant to say so, but I design socks that I’d want to knit. I want a pattern that looks fantastic, but isn’t ridiculously complicated. I want it to be easy, without being boring. I want to challenge myself a little, but not make things more difficult than they need to be. I love cables, twisted stitches, and lace. But not all at the same time! I try to design multiple sizes for each pattern since legs and feet come in all sizes. I also expect knitters to take liberties with the instructions and be able to substitute their favorite heel, toe or cuff if they so choose. I’m also pleased when a pattern can be converted into toe up without too much effort, although not all stitch patterns lend themselves to this. I do have every pattern test knitted to ensure accuracy and to get different perspectives on each pattern. However, I am human, so mistakes might happen. If they do, I’ll get them fixed right away.
