A more advanced sock for those who have made at least one sock before. Karen is enchanted by these socks made on straight needles – no circulars or double point needles to fiddle with and no seaming! The sock starts with a ruffled edge that has a lacey appearance in contrasting yarn (contrast yarn supplied by instructor), and each edge has an easy gorgeous cable. Then you add twisted stitches that create a fancy eyelet pattern and finish it off a wedge toe that carries the cable all the way to the end. Love!
