Copper Penny Socks-Knitting Pattern
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
These socks began with part of a simple lace pattern from an Estonian knitting book, adding seed stitch columns between the lace pattern. The subtle color changes and closely related hues of the yarn add an extra dimension to the textured pattern. The half-handkerchief heel shaping echoes the small "V" shapes in the openwork pattern, while the French toe shaping is a vintage technique from Weldon's Practical Needlework.Finished Size: About 7" (18 cm) foot circumference, 8" (20.5 cm) from top of cuff to to top of heel flap, and 9" (23 cm) from back of heel to tip of toe.
