Rakas is toe up sock featuring a delicate lace and twisted ribbing pattern on the instep. After the heel, the pattern is worked around the leg before transforming into twisted ribbing for the cuffs. The pattern calls for beads added on the go but you can easily omit them if you don’t like to work with beads.
