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