Dragon Lace Socks

Description This toe-up pattern includes a simple wedge toe and German short row heel. The lace work on the top of the foot continues around the leg after working the heel, then the cuff continues the twisted stitch motif before finishing off with a stretchy bind off which creates a gentle scallop. The length of the foot and the leg are customized to fit as you go.
