The Scots word for dusk or twilight, Gloaming is a fun shortie sock pattern with a lace pattern covering the foot. Knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap and flexible length fitting on the foot, these socks are a great knit for everyone! The pattern is written for short socks but guidance is included in the pattern to lengthen them into ankle socks.

The pattern is fully written with charts for the cables and has been tech-edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the knitting pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. You will also need to know how to do a double sided cast-on like Judy’s Magic Cast-On and a stretchy bind-off like Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off.
