For knitters like Karen Baumer, socks are no-stress projects. She likes to work easy patterns that allow her to knit while she travels or watches televison. This pretty but very simple lace pattern fits the bill by offering a change of pace from traditional ribs, without requiring elaborate charts or unwavering attention. Choose a fingering-weight yarn and work a picot edge for a dainty version, or choose a sportweight yarn and a basic ribbed cuff for a quick-to-knit pair.
