DESCRIPTIONJazz up a pair of basic ribbed socks with a cute lace panel.
Wolfberry are made of easy ribbing and a simple lace panel going up the outside of the foot and leg. The eight-round lace pattern is very easy to memorize — this is a great pair for a first lace socks project.
The pattern comes in two sizes: 64 and 72 stitches. The foot-hugging rib pattern gives a comfortable fit on a wide range of foot sizes. In addition, foot length is fully adjustable so you can make a pair socks that perfectly fit your measurements. Right and left socks are mirror images of each other and can be worked two at a time.
The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the stitch patterns.

TECHNIQUES USEDThe pattern uses the following techniques: working small circumferences in the round, ribbing, and lace. Ability to follow charts is recommended but written instructions are also provided for the stitch patterns.
The pattern assumes knowledge of a cast-on and bind-off method for toe-up socks; references are given for a couple of alternatives. The pattern also assumes knowledge of working short rows using the wrap-and-turn method.
