Lola loves a lovely sock, but her feet are oh so delicate and only princess soles will do …so I’ve designed her a sock that has purl stitches on the outside so her foot can tread daintily on smooth knit stitches.

Princess Lola Socks are worked from the toe up with a decorative gusset and sturdy slipped stitch heel (even princesses wear out their socks!). Finally the cuff has short rows to shape for its diminutive height and is finished off by a beaded crown!

Kits for Princess Lola were sent as January’s shipment for Lola’s Choice (Laura’s super fun small knitted kit club). If you don’t want to miss out on future Lola’s Choice kits you should subscribe!

You can also purchase the pattern as a pdf and gather your own supplies to make Princess Lola’s for yourself.
