If you're looking for a basic sock knitting pattern with a twist, you'll love these Lotus Blossom Knit Socks. With a lovely lattice pattern on the ankle, these socks are elegant, yet simple. The lotus blossom has several different associations depending on the culture, from beauty and purity to life and rebirth, but we can all agree that the loveliness of the lotus blossom suits these socks wonderfully. Even the regal violet color calls to mind a powerful femininity. You're doing yourself a disservice if you don't knit these beautiful socks.

NotesUse your favorite CO for toe-up socks.

Pretty toe up socks with an amazing knit lace pattern on the leg portion. Imagine how pretty these will be peeking from under a pair of nice pants. The drafted pattern is easy to follow and the chart is probably easier than following the written pattern layout. Made with a super wash yarn, these will become my favorite socks.
