Under the Big Top
These top-down socks feature a traditional heel flap while still packing a punch. The textured, circular lace pattern flows from the cuff into the leg of the sock. The lace pattern features knits and purls, providing delicate beauty and texture at the same time.
These socks were originally featured as a Three Irish Girls Sock Club pattern in 2014.
Pattern includes written instructions to accompany the charts.
The pattern is written for the small size socks with the instructions for the medium and large sizes written in parentheses ( ), where necessary. If no parentheses are used, the instructions are the same for all sizes.
If knitting the large size socks, it’s recommended that you purchase a second skein of yarn, to ensure you don’t run out!
On rounds 9 & 15 of the leg, the round ends with a yarnover. Take care not to lose it at the end of the round.
