Rose Quartz Shorties


Rose Quartz Shorties are quick-to-knit, ankle-length sneaker socks you can whip out of less than a skein of fingering-weight sock yarn. The sharp angles of the lace pattern bring to mind the jagged edges of the unhewn gemstone the socks are named after.

Knit from the toe up, Rose Quartz Shorties are worked in a delicate and airy lace pattern that's perfect for summery socks. The socks feature a reinforced heel flap that provides durability and cushioned comfort whether you wear the socks with or without shoes. An optional short-row heel tab at the back leg adds extra functionality, preventing slippage and keeping the socks in place. A short twisted-rib cuff completes the design, giving the socks a polished look.

Rose Quartz Shorties come in three sizes (58, 66, and 74 stitches) with adjustable foot length. Right and left socks are identical and can be worked two-at-a-time. The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are provided, allowing you to choose your preferred method of following the lace pattern.
