These glamorous cuff-down socks were designed to feature the subtle sparkle of a merino/estellina blend yarn. The pattern uses twisted ribbing and lace to create intricate and feminine socks. Right and left socks are mirror images, so the lifted increases used to transition from lace to twisted stitches are worked differently for each sock. The pattern provides separate charts for the left and right socks.
