Strategically placing ladders and holes results in clean, straight lines that slash across your upper foot, providing a built-in lace cooling system for your feet this summer. The toe-up pattern is an easy-to-remember logical mixture of traveling stitches and some beginner's lace, combined with lots of fast Stockinette stitch. Published by Blue Moon Fiber Arts in April 2008.
Please note: instead of the provisional cast-on toe, use any other cast-on method you're more comfortable with.
The pattern is exclusively available via Blue Moon Fiber Arts.
