diamond lucy

A subtly textured diamond pattern and a high-relief seeded rib wrap around the leg of these mirror-image socks. I chose the yarn for this design very carefully to ensure that the stitch pattern would not disappear into a deeply colored or highly textured fiber. When selecting yarn for your socks, look for a tightly twisted, smooth, light-colored yarn to make the pattern stand out.


Approximately 400 yards fingering-weight yarn

Sample uses Blue Moon Seduction (50% merino wool, 50% Tencel) in Blue Moonstone.

US1 (2.25mm) needles or size needed to obtain gauge


8 stitches/10 rounds per inch in stockinette stitch


Foot circumference = approximately 8.5"
