The Lemme Peds are a pair of delicate top-down shorties that start with a beaded stitch I’ve nicknamed the Lemme stitch. It’s curvy and swirly and adds a playful glimmer to your ankle! Check out this short and fabulous tutorial on the The Lemme Stitch.
Lemme Peds have a decorative and sturdy “eye of the partridge” heel, and a Princess sole (because we all know Lola is a princess). Subtle ribbing flows down along the top of the foot, making it easy to adjust the length of the sock before finishing it off with a classic toe. Lemme tell you, these peds are a FUN knit!
