Patterns for Lace Socks (non-beaded)

Knitting patterns for unbeaded lace socks using traditional cuff-down techniques

This portion of the Jackie E-S Sock Design Collections is devoted to knitting lace socks using traditional cuff-down techniques. his web page includes only those designs using lace-type pattern stitches (i.e. yarn overs) and that are not beaded. I welcome you to also take a look at the Traditional Knitted Socks and Beaded Lace Socks sections of the HeartStrings catalog for additional cuff-down patterns designed by Jackie E-S.

A Feat of Twist Socks A Feat of Twist Socks
Pattern #S27. The design of these lace and cable-icious sandal socks was inspired by a twist on the saying "A Twist of Fate". Twisty lace columns alternate with lacy mesh enclosed in non-binding cable crossings. The result is lots of elasticity for a good fit across a range of sizes. More ...
Concertina Lace Socks Concertina Lace Socks
Pattern #S17. I designed this lace to give the illusion of dimensionality, rather like the bellows on a concertina. This small accordian-like instrument mesmerizes everyone with its happy music and wavelike rhythm as the bellows are pushed in and pulled out. More ...
Country Girl Lace Socks Country Girl Lace Socks
Pattern #A38. Dainty and dignified lace-patterned socks for the country girl at heart. Socks are slightly shaped below calf for a trim fit at ankle. Notch-edged bias lace panel ribbing at cuff transitions into an arrow-head lace pattern, that narrows toward the ankle and continues into the instep. The arrow-head lace then changes into subtle ribbing along top of foot. More ...
Errant Ankles Lace Socks Errant Ankles Lace Socks
Pattern #A67. A simple lace pattern makes into a zig zag ribbed sock with a slight scalloped edge. Choice of plain or banded heel flap where the pattern extends downward on each side of a modified square heel. Instep transitions from the lace pattern into a 5,1 rib and ends with a swirl decrease toe. More ...
Eyelet Ankle-Ribbed Socks Eyelet Ankle-Ribbed Socks
Pattern #A3. These socks are ribbed at the ankle (instead of the top!) and comfortably support an eyelet-patterned cuff with a pretty scalloped edge. Another petite eyelet pattern decorates the foot. More ...
Heart Socks Heart Socks
Pattern #A36. Pamper someone (even yourself!); pretty socks with dainty lace hearts pattern. More ...
Lace Maple Leaf Socks (aka Canada Socks) Lace Maple Leaf Socks (aka Canada Socks)
Pattern #S30. Whenever seeing the Maple Leaf emblazoned on the National Flag of Canada, my memories of the many happy times I have spent in Canada resurface. And thus, when offered the opportunity to design socks as a tribute to my northern neighbors, a maple leaf motif seemed an obvious choice as a focal element. More ...
Luxury Lace Socks Luxury Lace Socks
Pattern #S09. These fine gauge socks in exotic laceweight yarns are an extra special treat for your feet. Designed with a simple small-multiple lace motif set within ribbed columns to be pleasantly interesting, yet straight forward enough in case this might be your first adventure on tiny needles. More ...
Parting Ways Socks Parting Ways Socks
Pattern #A18. A dressy pair of socks, with swirling eyelet rib pattern. The ribbing pattern parts ways at the juncture of heel and instep with a column of the pattern extending downward on each side of a modified square heel while the top of the foot continues in the ribbing pattern. More ...
Peek-a-Boo Flowery Lace Anklets Peek-a-Boo Flowery Lace Anklets
Pattern #A82. The colors of your favorite flower garden peek through the eyelets of turned-down cuffs knitted in lace flower motifs. More ...
Pulled Salt Water Taffy Socks Pulled Salt Water Taffy Socks
Pattern #S32. The pattern stitch of these socks was designed to mimic the look of taffy being pulled as it is readied for its final stages of candy formation. The ribbed stitch also makes a good-fitting sock across a range of sizes. More ...
Dragonfly Dreams Red Hots Anklets
Pattern #S36. Red Hots Anklets are named after the small nuggets of the popular cinnamon-flavored candy. The pattern stitch incorporates wrapped stitches to simulate the candy nuggets. More ...
Simple Angles Socks Simple Angles Socks
Pattern #A44. Classic great fitting ribbed socks with distinctive styling. Easy-to-knit left and right-angled eyelet bands embellish ribbing on legs. More ...
Summer Lace Anklets Summer Lace Anklets
Pattern #A85. Lace-edged split cuff socks are designed for cotton and cotton-blend yarns, thus making them nice for summertime and those who prefer cotton. If you prefer to knit with wool, that is fine, too! More ...
Swag Lace Socks Swag Lace Socks
Pattern #A53. Pleated triangular eyelet bands of stockinette alternating with reverse stockinette give dramatic shape and texture to these socks. The cuffs can be pushed down on the leg to wear like sophisticated slouch socks. Or wear pulled up and show off the pretty lace cable along each side of the leg. More ...
Swirling Lace Anklets Swirling Lace Anklets
Pattern #A34. Swirling Lace Anklets are low-top socks in an intriguing lace pattern that curls this way and that way down the cuff and along the top of the foot. Since the cuff is very short, these anklets can be made successfully with inelastic fibers like silk and cotton without fear of sagging. More ...
