I liked my ‘A walk in the fields‘ socks with the colorwork flowers at the top so much, that I had to make another pair …
Here is ‘another walk’
A very easy lace stitch pattern …
and a little bit of colorwork …
The socks are worked in the same way: toe up with a heel flap and a short row heel, but for these socks the stitch pattern is also on the heel flap. Foot, leg and heel flap feature a very easy meandering lace stitch pattern that only consists of knit and purl stitches, yarn overs and simple decreases.
The lace stitch pattern is charted and fully written.
For the first sock I chose hot pink for the flowers, but then I found a little leftover of dark purple in my stash. I thought that might be better.
Which color do you like best ?

2 mm (US 0) circular needle or 5 double pointed needles or size to obtain gauge

It is important to check the gauge for the lace stitch pattern. Because it features eyelets and garter stitch, it might come out larger than intended. Go down a needle size if necessary.
