A simple, classic Van Dyke lace pattern climbs up these toe-up socks. One of the beauties of lace socks is their inherent stretchiness. Plus, the pattern is written for four sizes, so you can make a pair to truly fit everyone. Suggested materials include 1/fine yarn and 1 set of US size 2 (2.75mm) double-pointed needles. Fits sizes small (7 1/2"), medium (8"), large (8 1/2"), and extra large (9").
