Texture, lace, and beads are more than the sum of their parts when merged together in this delightful sock. Jack- in-the-pulpits march up the center front, beads and all, and the undulating lacy ribs on either side step aside to let them pass. The beaded pattern starts right away at the tip of the round toe, and the fun continues from there. Heel is traditional gusset and heel flap construction with pattern on the heel flap. Socks are beaded using the crochet hook add-as-you-go method.
This sock was first published as part of the Pico-Accuardi Dyeworks Sock Club in 2010.
