These socks are knit in an easy-to-remember, ribbed lace stitch that is reminiscent of tiny, repeating cat’s paws. The pattern is written from the cuff down, with a traditional heel flap and toe shaping. The stitch pattern is stretchy, so this pattern will fit a wide range of leg circumferences. Use a bright variegated yarn like the Madeline Tosh pictured here in Sugar Skulls for a fast, fun knit.
