Swirling Lace Anklets
HeartStrings knitting 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.
Adult medium. 350 yards fingering weight. 8 stitches/inch, size US 1 / 2.5 mm needles suggested. Shown above in handspun 2-ply silk blend. Charted instructions.
Swirling Lace Anklets are lovely knitted in multi-colored yarns, too. Here is an example made in Panda Soy by Crystal Palace Yarns, color Mint Print.

I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying knitting Siwrling Lace Anklets. This i the third pair of socks that I have made and the first following a pattern other than the basic sock pattern. I found your instructions to be clear and concise and if followed, it works to a T. I just cast on for the second sock and I know htat my mom will love these when I give them to her.

Just a short and personal note to let you know how much I enjoyed your Swirling Lace Anklets pattern ... Your directions were very clear
and concise, and best of all the charts were nice and large. This was just an overall ´hard to put down until you are finished´ type of pattern ... I LOVED IT!!! I'll check out your webpage and see what other types of fun I can get myself into ... Thanks so much for sharing your work.
