Buffalo down is a soft yet sturdy fiber worthy of pampering your feet. Add some beads and a pretty lace pattern, and you will have a luscious pair of Buffalo Beaded Socks to treasure for traveling across the plains or anywhere. Of course, these socks can be made with yarn other than buffalo down or buffalo down blend with merino or nylon.
To knit for women in size medium (5 1/2" leg length above the heel flap, 7 1/2" foot circumference, 9 1/2" foot length), they feature a delicate lace pattern highlighted by the addition of beads following the undulating lace up the leg. These socks use 310 yards of Fingering Weight (27-28 st/4") yarn and approximately 200 (about 15 g) size 6/0 (4 mm diameter) glass seed beads.
