Introducing Pavo Socks:

$3.50 download

Socks knit with fingering weight yarn (approx. 400 yards) on 2 circular needles (size 1.5).

Toe-Up construction with a traditional heel flap.

Peacock Plumes lace pattern on leg and instep.
(Pavo is the scientific genus of Peacocks, so I thought the name fit!)

Techniques used: toe up cast on, left and right leaning increases, and a stretchy 1×1 rib bind off, like Kitchener Rib Bind Off.

The lace is slightly off center, so the pattern includes charts to mirror image your second sock, if desired.

Charts and fully written out lace pattern included.

    These are very pretty! Would you say a beginning sock knitter could knit these?

  2. Heather says:

    Well, I think they’re a tad bit complicated for an absolute beginning sock knitter to attempt. It depends on how fearless the knitter is! They’re toe-up, which can be a little difficult for beginners to try, but the lace pattern isn’t too complicated (although there is some moving of stitch markers on the leg part).
