I enjoy cheerful and lively traditional Irish music and it is always a treat to watch Irish dancers in their colourful costumes dancing jigs and reels.This sock pattern was inspired by the so-called ‘Poodle Socks’ worn by Irish dancers.
The socks are knitted cuff down with a short-row heel. They are worked with a ribbed section around the foot, just as traditional dancing socks. The toe is worked as a spiral toe. The lace pattern worked on the leg is embellished with beads (optional, placed with a crochet hook while knitting).
