Enjoy!

Introduction

Autumn Reminiscence
I know, it could sounds weird, but I do like socks ( made by me, lol), and hairpin lace. So here I joined the two things together. Now is hot here (Chile), and I had the perfect fall colors yarn.
It is not my first pair, so I know it works, but as always, everybody loves my socks....

Enjoy!

Materials List

-2 ply yarn (mine is 100% wool) 3 oz,
-3mm (near #3 steel American) hook

-3/4" hairpin (homemade, just with wire, and a little help of my friends)

Finished Size

Small and average woman The size I use is for small and average woman, but you can adjust it as you go.

Gauge

70 loops each side 14" long, 1/2" wide.

Notes

Hairpin lace tutorials are found in different links.

The Pattern

For an average (small) woman,
10 stripes of 80 (70)loops eacch side,
10 stripes of 35 (25) loops (for sole),
10 stripes 45 loops for the leg.
Do use a marker (I use a safety pin), where you end every row, so they go the same way when you join them.
Zig-zag strip joining
There will be 3 holes, one for the leg, the other for the toes and the middle for the heel.
Work all loose ends.
Join one (main) yarn with the hook, and work evenly sc.
Toes and heel, place markers at both sides.
2-10 th row sc diminish at both sides where the markers are.
Measure your feet, as they must feel cozy, so you can add-substract some rows. Sew the ends.
Leg, Do a sc round, and then a shell (1 sc 1 hdc 1 dc 1 hdc 1 sc)the next, skip 2 sc and do another shell.
Use a baby cord, or twisted yarn cord for ornament, as they will fit very comfortable.

I made an accent with some irish crochet leaves.
