Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Summer 2006: “Seven snappy colorways offer endless options for your sock drawer. Make a matching pair or, as an antidote to repetitive knitting, make two socks in different color combinations. A clever toe construction makes the most of a stranded, striped pattern repeated on heels and cuffs.”

Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “A clever toe construction makes the most of a stranded, striped pattern repeated on heels and cuffs. See the addendum for insructions on how to adjust this woman’s sock pattern to fit children.”
