Opus 200 sock: ribbon-decorated cuff and catherine wheel lace design

Opus 200


Short summer socks with four catherine wheel lace panels on the legs and one long panel along the top of the instep. The cuffs are decorated with a ribbon border in contrast colour, and ribbon can be threaded around individual panels, leaving knotted ends dangling. This pattern is suitable for the experienced knitter. Fully-written patterns for TOP-DOWN VERSION and TOE-UP VERSION are included.

Sizes: women’s medium and large widths. Foot and leg length can be infinitely adjusted.



  • 100g/380m of 4 ply yarn (light fingering) in solid main clr (med/lge size); or 2 or 3 ply/laceweight (sml size);
  • 25g/45m of any narrow (ca.6mm), silky-texture ribbon in contrast colour. Ladder ribbon such as Sirdar Firefly could be substituted for different effect, perhaps stranded with main colour yarn. 4 ply sock yarn in a contrast colour would look different but would still make a good edging.

Needles: the top-down version is knitted mainly on 4 dpns, but using 5 dpns for the four leg panels; the toe-up version is knitted on two circular needles of the same size.

  • Metric: 2mm for small size; 2.25 – 2.5mm for medium size; 2.75mm for large size.
  • UK and Canadian: Size 14 (sml); size 13 (med); size 12 (large)
  • US: Size 0 (sml); size 1-2 (med); size 2 (large)
