A delicately patterned sock that uses short rows to create the toe and heel. A gusset has been added also at the instep as I find that socks with a gusset have a better fit. If in doubt about size drop down to the finished circumference just smaller than your foot circumference. Socks fit nicely with a little negative ease so they are not baggy. Adjust the foot length to fit your actual length for a good fit.
SIZE To fit foot circumference up to: 8 (9, 10)” / 20.5 (23, 25.5) cm.
Size 7” / 18cm modeled with 1” / 2.5cm negative ease.
