"Swag Lace socks," explains Erickson-Schweitzer, "feature pleated triangular eyelet bands of stockinette alternating with reverse stockinette to give dramatic shape and texture to these socks. The cuffs can be pushed down on the leg to wear like 'slouch' socks. Or wear pulled up and show off the pretty lace cable along each side of the leg. Stunning textural definition in solid colors, or use variegated colors to emphasize the movement of the stitch pattern in undulating lines." Beautifully designed, written, and explained.
