My dear cousin Frida asked me a while ago to design socks for her and I wanted to come up with something that would be both beautiful and interesting to knit. The result was this easy lace pattern of roses on the top of the sock, accompanied by cables at the sides and broken rib at the back and the bottom. The sock is worked toe up with a heel flap and gusset shaping, using the Magic Loop technique but double pointed needles can of course be used instead. I hope you will like knitting them!
