Odonata is the genus label for the dragonflies that inspired this design – the middle section has a stitch pattern reminiscent of scales, and the ends are lacy wings with beads adding even more sparkle to the silk.
Free pattern!! Toe-up and Top-Down versions written out below - see the bottom of the page for a PDF link for printing.
Little covers for toes and the balls of the feet to allow for pain-free spins - and bare heels to stop easily! Use up that pretty left over sock yarn. Do be careful - bare floors and socks can be slick.
Getting buried by your sock yarn stash? Found a couple of balls of a great handpaint? Want to make socks to fit, or looking for an easy pattern that has just the right amount of interest? This may be the pattern for you!
