We are also happy to introduce a fabulous new sock pattern designed by Lucia Tedesco, the "Lacy Mock Cable Socks." Lucia was born and raised in Roma, Italy. Her mom taught her how to knit during a very rainy vacation on the Dolomites when she was fourteen years old and she has hardly put her needles down ever since. She now lives in the Silicon Valley with her husband who makes her espresso in the morning, her two children, Principessa and Paperino, and her knitting that she still calls "maglia." You can read all about her knitting adventures on her blog.
These lacy socks are an easy to knit, intermediate level pattern which have the look of cables, but are knit with yarn overs and decreases. The socks feature gusset increases, a slipped stitch heel flap, and a round heel and are knit, suprisingly from the toe-up. The pattern uses just one skein of Lanas Puras Melosa, fingering weight yarn. The colorway shown is Fantasy, but these socks would be beautiful in any of our many colorways of Lanas Puras Melosa.
