Think I have this worked out...but need some help
loving this pattern

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...-lacy-lace-ups

Doesn't seem to be available, but I am pretty sure I can improve it...

The only thing I am not too sure of is the cuff. The lacy part on the cuff is a bit of a confusion for me.

I suspect these are toe up socks and that when you get to the top you need to double stitches...but I am not entirely certain about construction there...

Anyone have some insight?

I've seen hat patterns that have a brim that increases on one or two rows for a similar effect. Are you wondering about how to do the increases? Maybe a kfb for example over a couple of rows?
Really unusual and interesting effect.

I think they are cuff down. One of the green boxes even says so, on the rav page. Unless the top of the cuff has to be worked first they could probably be done toe up. I'm not sure what you mean by The lacy part on the cuff. Do you mean the ruffle? They look like a fun knit and I'd like to maybe try them myself.

I had another look at the Lacy Lace Ups. I think they cast on for and worked the ruffle, decreased, worked a picot hem, continued on with the sock. Maybe. Maybe not. To reverse for toe up, I think you'd work a picot hem then increase for the ruffle.

Yeah...I mean the cuff...if you start at the cuff...then one would garter for about an inch then....separate for ruffle? I can get it past the ruffle...but not sure about that start point

My thoughts:

Start with a ruffle. This one has built in eyelets. You could make it longer than the one in the video if you want and I'm sure you could find more ruffle videos. After decreasing from the ruffle you would, in effect, work a picot hem but the decrease row of the ruffle would get stitched to the main sock cuff. You would just continue your sock top as you need to for the pattern. Are the sock tops split and laced up or is the lacing more of a trim? If they're to be worked in the round the flat knitting instructions would have to be converted to working in the round but that shouldn't be hard. I'm eager to know how you finally work this out.

The sock tops to just about the heel and the ruffle look like they're knit flat, then joined in the round to knit the rest of the sock. The baseball lacing closes the leg and the split at the ruffle.

Ok....I think I got it worked out...

I think it would be...cast on what ever...(for me, likely 76 st on 2.25 mm) garter stitch flat for about 1", increase to x3 (228), leave 152 live, but continue to knit down for about 8" with a garter for the first 10 st, pattern in the middle, garter 10 st. Eyelet every 10-15 rows. then continue on in regular sock pattern after that. I suspect. Then go back and pick up the live stitches at the end and finish ruffle....

Yes?
