Breathing Fire socks

On Sale
Added to cart
A single stripe of lacy flames goes down the leg and foot, like a stream of flames from a fire breather.

The pattern looks more complicated than it actually is, and it is only a single stripe of lace on each sock, which makes them a great beginner or intermediate lace knitting project.

I have covered a variety of foot circumferences and shoe sizes in the pattern, to make sure it works for as many people as possible without them having to calculate numbers for themselves.

The pattern is fully written, or comes with a chart for the lace pattern so you can use whichever you are most comfortable with.
