The Tea Rose Socks are the elegant alternative to your usual crazy colorful hand knitted pair of socks.
The lace pattern itself already looks very put together but paired with a picot edging, these socks will make you feel like the Queen of England.
If you are new to knitting a picot edge, I have included a short video on how to add a picot edging to your socks below.
I have chosen to add a German short row heel (the Boomerang heel) to the pattern, because it is a plain and simple heel that won’t distract from the lace pattern.
The pattern looks great on solid colored yarn, but the lace is also visible enough to be combined with variegated / speckled yarn.
If you want to wear the socks in summer, you can skip the leg and just combine the picot edge with the lace pattern along the foot.
The pattern is written for socks in the size 37 (US 6) but there are also instructions included on how to knit the socks in other sizes (EU 32-45).
You will however need to cast on 56, 64 or 72 stitches!
The yarn that I used is my own hand dyed sock yarn, so you will need a skein of 4-ply standard sock yarn to knit these socks.
