August 2011 - Foliage Lace Socks

This is an alternative to your regular sock pattern; it adds a decorative cuff to the sock. I used a skein of Tanis sock weight yarn.

Cast on 63 stitches. (Multiple of 12 sts plus 3). Work pattern as follows for 3 inches.

Row 1 k1, k2tog, k4, yo:* k1,yo,k4,sl1-k2 tog-psso,k4,yo; rep from *, end k1,yo, k4 SKP, k1.

Row 2 and all even rows knit.

Row 3 k1,k2tog,k3,yok1, *k2,yo,k3,sl 1-k2tog-psso, k3, yo,k1; rep from *, end k2, yok3,SKP, k1.

Row 5 k1,k2tog,k2, yo k1,yo*sl 1- k2 tog-psso, yo, k1,yo,k2, sl1-k2tog-psso, k2, yo,k1,yo; rep from *, end sl 1-k2tog-psso,yo,k1,yo,k2 SKP,k1.

Row 7 k1, k2tog, k1, yo, k2,yo *sl1-k2tog-psso,yo,k2,yo,k1,sl1-k2 tog-psso, k1,yo,k2,yo;rep from *, end sl1-k2 tog-psso,yo,k2,yo,k1,SKP,k1.

Row 9 k2,yo, SKP, k2tog, yo, k1,*k2, yo, SKP, k2tog, yo, k1, yo,SKP,k2tog,yo,k1,from *, end k2, yo,SKP, k2tog,yo,k2.

Row 10 knit.

At this point turn the sock leg inside out and continue. Work the leg until it measures the same length as the cuff.
Use your regular sock pattern to finish the sock.

The Foliage Lace pattern is from the Vogue daily calendar for 2010.
