Fancy some festive socks? You have found some. My passion for beading continues with these fabulous beaded socks with a lace Christmas Tree motif. The Beads delicately highlight the pretty tree pattern that’s knitted into the fabric, and their metallic shade beautifully complements the rich red yarn with the golden sparkles in it.
The beads are applied with my favourite bead knitting method using a crochet hook, instructions are included with the pattern.
Of course if you are not a fan of beading these socks will look just as cute without the beads.
