The Fireworks Socks are an easy knit, being mostly stockinette, but they have some fun details that really make the sock. A band heel (because we all need to listen to the band on the Fourth of July), star toe, and embroidered fireworks with stars make this sock special without being too challenging.

This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice to intermediate knitter. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
