The Effie socks are inspired by vintage boarding school books and midnight feasts.
The socks in the collection are knitted from the top down using a standard heel flap and gusset construction. The ruffled frill and first half of the turned-back cuff are knitted first, then inverted using a short row before knitting the rest of the sock. The foot length of the socks is adjustable to fit.
The Effie socks are perfect for dressing up a simple outfit – they can be worn with shoes or boots, letting the lace frill detail peep out over the top.
Instructions are given for both two-colour and single-colour versions. The lace stitch pattern is given as both a chart and written instructions. Tutorials are included for the inversion round and blocking the ruffle.
The pattern is written to be needle-neutral and can be knitted using either the magic-loop technique, short circulars or DPNs, depending on your individual preference. The pattern also features helpful hints for beginners.

- The pattern is needle-neutral, so you can use DPNs, a circular needle at least 80 cm [32 in] in length or a short (22.5 cm [9 in]) circular needle.
