The Aquitaine Sock pattern, named after Eleanor of Aquitaine, contains two versions of a top-down lace patterned sock: version one, with diamonds on the leg and foot-hugging ribbing on the ankle and foot; and version two, with elegant beaded diamonds on the leg, and an unbeaded continuation of the diamonds on the foot. Suitable for intermediate level knitters, it would also provide a nice challenge to an adventurous sock or lace beginner.
The lace pattern is both charted and written out. Approximately 400 yards (366 meters) of sock-weight yarn are required, and 48 “E” or 6/0 beads are needed for version two (as well as a crochet hook that fits through the beads).
