Pointelle Cuffs Done

This is the picture (above)of the sock pattern Pointelle in the book Knit.Sock.Love by Cookie A.

I'm showing the book picture because my pair in progress don't look all that pretty yet.

Here are my Pointelle cuffs viewed from the front.

Like most lace, they're going to need a little blocking before they're at their most beautiful. I always try to knit my socks with a little negative ease so blocking involves stretching them out by putting them on my feet.

This is the back. There's a right sock and a left sock, mirror images of each other. The stitch markers designate the left sock.

Pattern: Pointelle from Knit.Sock.Love by by Cookie A. Size small.

Yarn: Stalwart Sock from Slackford Studio. 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 4 Ply Fingering Weight Sock Yarn.

Color: Old Rose.

Needles: Options 2.25mm circulars.

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette.

They're pretty darn pretty even without blocking!

They are very pretty and I really like both colours, yours and hers.

It is a pretty pattern and I know Cookie's socks are fun to knit. I like the color you selected too.

Yikes - I'm so out of the loop that I didn't even know she had a new book - beautiful socks!

Indeed, beautiful!
When you get to it, I'd like to know how long the leg is.
Thanks for your chat-backs.

Oh yes they are as amazing and beautiful. I prefer the pink to yellow anyday!
