Electric Eyelet Socks

The sample may be knit in a shocking lime color, but these socks would look lovely in softer shades too, with the delicate eyelet patterning on the cuff. Knit cuff down on two circulars, a portion of the proceeds from this pattern is donated to the Lustgarten Foundation to fight pancreatic cancer, the disease which took my father’s life in 2009.
