Discover Lauren Rad's beautiful pattern offered in September 2021 for the mystery sock club and now offered for all!!! ♥
Lucida refers to the brightest star in any given constellation. During winter-time, the stars feel extra bright in the crisp, cold, night air, so that almost every star feels like it could be a lucida.
The eyelets dan-cing up and down the front and back of these socks are meant to mimic a night sky dusted with twinkling stars.
In addition to the knitting pattern, you need the following materials to knit Lucida socks:
- Louise Robert Yarns Collection – Super Sock [75% Merino SW and 25% Nylon, 400 m / 437 yds, 100 g / 3.5 oz] shown in color Exclusive color - we suggest Brooke (or 274-348 m / 300-380 yds of another fingering weight yarn).
- Circular or DPN’s needles of 2.5 mm (US 1.5).
- One stitch marker for beginning of round; optional additional markers between pattern repeats
- Cable needle.
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
SIZES: S, M, L
Finished sock dimensions: 18 cm; 7”, 20 cm; 8”, 23 cm; 9” circumference. (Note: most people like their socks snug, so choose a finished sock size that is slightly smaller than your actual foot)
GAUGE : 10 cm; 4” square = 34 stitches x 41 rows in stockinette.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate
TECHNIQUES : cables, increases, decreases, knitting in the round.
NOTES: These socks are knit from the cuff down with a 1x1 twisted rib cuff. They feature a center panel of lace and cables that runs down the front and back of the sock. The heel is constructed with a classic heel flap and gusset for the snuggest and most customizable fit, and the socks end with a wedge toe.

Well written. Interesting pattern but easy to work. A joy to watch the sock progress and behold the finished project.
My daughter fell in love with these socks so Mom knit them for her. Now her 27 and 24 year daughters want a pair which lead to thier cousin having to have a pair. All three grandaufgters are nuts about thief’s socks.
