These Lace Sneaker Socks are the ideal breezy summer socks if they are knitted with a lighter yarn (especially with cotton/wool blends) but they can also be nice and cozy for those dark fall days!
The lace pattern is visible enough to be an eye-catcher but not so holey that your feet will get cold. You can either use a flashy yarn for this (like I have) or even use a solid color to make the lace stand out more.
I have chosen my favorite round toe shape, which is really pretty and also easy to understand.
You can knit these socks as sneaker socks by knitting a short cuff or even as regular socks by knitting a long cuff.
The heel has a heel flap with a slip stitch rib.
The ribbing of the heel and the lace pattern of the foot go very well together.
The videos are for socks in the size 37 (US 6) but the written instructions include tips on how to knit the socks in other sizes (EU 28-45).
You will however need to cast on 56, 64 or 72 stitches!
The yarn that I used in the videos is my own hand dyed sock yarn, so you will need a skein of 4ply standard sock yarn to knit these socks.
