Lemme Socks start with a beaded stitch I’ve nicknamed the Lemme stitch.  It’s curvy and swirly and adds a playful glimmer to your ankle! The leg is knit with lacey cabled stitch that runs down into the sturdy “eye of the partridge” heel. Then a Princess sole is worked (because we all know Lola is a princess).  

Check out this short and fabulous tutorial on the The Lemme Stitch.

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 are a FUN knit!
