Maida Vale

Jo Torr Maida Vale Japanese lace socks

Pattern: £4.50 (+ VAT)

These toe-up socks are a fantastic introduction to the massively popular world of Japanese lace. The pattern has twisted stitches and eyelets, but it’s a simple and easy to remember repeat, so you end up with something that’s much more difficult than it looks, and who doesn’t like that?

Instructions for the lace are both charted and fully written out so you can choose which option you prefer.

Sizes (measured around mid-foot)

  • Small – 7″ (17.75cm)
  • Medium – 8″ (20.25cm)
  • Large – 9″ (22.75cm)

Yarn Requirements

100g of 4ply (fingering) sock yarn; I’d recommend solid, semi-solid or tonal.  The sample was knit in Knit Picks Hawthorne Kettle Dye Fingering in Poseidon colourway.
