I’m so excited to share my newest pattern with you today. This is Underbrush, a rectangular lace wrap I designed to use one of my skeins of handspun. The story of how this wrap came to be is dear to my heart.
This design was inspired by the slinky, snake-like movements of one of my favorite dancers, whose style I aspire to emulate in my own dance practice. The picot hem crowns the undulating, serpentine lace columns of these cuff-down socks. Optional beads on the leg highlight the mesmerizing twists and turns of the serpent’s dance. The lace on the back of the leg merges seamlessly into a slipped stitch heel flap.
