‘Heliotrope’ Lace Socks Pattern

My ‘Heliotrope’ lace socks pattern is featured in the sock supplement of The Knitter Issue 70, along with a sweet pair of yellow socks by Rachel Coopey, and some adaptable ’10 stitch socks’ by Liz Lovick.

‘Heliotrope’ were designed with Artesano Definition sock yarn, and the pattern is available in 2 sizes. It’s a really fun pattern to get stuck into, as each repeat is so large, you’re done in no time. The yarn really is what it says it is too, the stitches really pop and are well defined. And I love the colour!


I’m really pleased with this sock design and how the cables flow nicely into the pattern. Worked from the toe up, the heart pattern flows up the front of the foot, and the chain-like cables run up from the heel.
