What you need to know

Embrace lace with these two brilliant designs

You all know how much we love lacy knits during the summer and socks are a great way to try out some of the techniques involved. They’re big enough to show off the effect but are small enough to knit up quickly. We’ve got an ankle-length pair from Katya Frankel and a pair of vibrant trainer socks from Drops. Which will you make first?
