These regally feminine socks feature a deceptively simple lace pattern inspired by ancient architecture. Palisades are fences or walls constructed from iron or wooden stakes and used as a defensive structures or enclosures.
The heel flap commences with a gradual transition from lace into a more durable heel stitch. The lace pattern extends over the instep and concludes with delicate points at the toe.
The pattern includes detailed instructions and charted stitch patterns. These socks are worked from the top down.
