This is a lace sock that can be knit from the toe up or from the cuff down, with a slip stitch heel. Because of the stitch pattern this sock is in just one size, a 76 stitch leg. Any changes in size will have to be made by adjusting the gauge. There is an option for doing the toe in an eye of partridge stitch.
If you need to make it smaller I've included 3 optional lace side panels. The stitch pattern is a 34 row repeat, so a lot of typical side panel patterns won't work.
