An entertaining sock for the ardent sock knitter, for those in search of an interesting foot-suntan pattern, or those with naturally hot feet!
This stitch pattern sets off hand-painted yarns beautifully. The design features: Loopy edging, scallop openings (no casting-on/binding-off here), the wonderful and sturdy (and well-fitting) garter stitch short-row heel, and sole short rows. Too much fun!
This pattern features written instructions, helpful diagrams and some charts
