NOTES
The pattern is toe-up, and intended for knitters who have made socks toe-up before (or who have at least made socks before). A chart for the instep (lace and toe increases) is included, as is one for the heel and the lace up the back of the sock. Follow the directions for the CO and increase for the sole of the sock in the same way the instep is charted (i.e. without lace).
