A variety of lace patterns originated in Spain, but lace knitted stockings came into their own in France. These created quite a sensation, especially in England, where Henry VIII owned many pairs of French-made lace stockings.
These socks were designed as as “sisters” to my leaf-patterned Helmike-socks. Knitted on double pointed needles, I combined lovely lace cuff with some stranded pattern and lace with small flowers. Any other color instead of violet or orange would look great and shiny with white. Or maybe instead of white some other color? :)
