Are you pedantic about matching the stripes on your socks? Now’s your chance to let loose!
Sorelle are a pair of fun-loving fraternal twin sisters. Made in a lace pattern that has perfect transition points for switching colors, these toe-up socks are knitted in fingering-weight yarn with 66 stitches. The socks have single-color toes, heels, and ribbing with an alternating-color lace pattern in between.
Pick two contrasting colors or go scrap-happy and bust out your leftovers! Yes, you can also knit an identical pair. Or use just one color. But that would be, you know, boring.
The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace pattern. Right and left socks are knitted identically and can be worked two at a time.
