These socks are knit toe-up and feature all kinds of Kitsch you can probably imagine: glitzy little beads, lace, hearts in various shapes, techniques and sizes and even nested hearts with beads and lace combined. The heel construction is my own design and is a solution to the problem of letting a band (lace band, cabled band, …) flow uninterruptedly from the instep behind the back of the heel to the instep again. A versatile sock knitting pattern.
A photo tutorial on how to add beads to your knitting is included in the pattern. The pattern has been test knit carefully.
