Hand dyed, beautiful variegated yarn hardly needs anything other then a couple of smart details. To meet that requirement, Firestarter not only has plenty of stockinet stitches, but each side of the foot has twisted stitches that pop out beautifully and keep you busy. Upon reaching the gussets, the side cables will split up and frame the purled gusset stitches. After turning the heel, the cables will twist back together and at the same time, smoothly ‘locking’ the gusset. The ribbed cuff has a tiny bit of shaping to fit the natural contour of the leg.
