This top-down sock in four sizes XS(S, M, L) begins with a frill along the top edge that’ll turn heads for sure when paired with heels or a cute printed tennis shoe. A sleek pointelle openwork “print” extends down the leg and over the top of the foot to fit smoothly into summery shoes—the short row heel also minimizes bulk and distracting edges. Worked in a finer gauge, it makes a great lightweight sock to wear with lots of summer favorites. Leg height may be extended as yarn supply allows.
