This looks like a basic lace knitting sock pattern. I usually prefer to use circulars but I will stick to the instructions and use double pointed needles. My one complaint is the same number of stitches for the different sizes. I would normally start with less stitches since I have small feet and skinny legs. It is worth a try though since the pattern is so pretty. Have to put it on my list.

I am half way through the pattern. I wish I could contact the author to ask questions.
