“This is a stretchy pattern and will fit women’s sizes medium-large,” reports Kassees. “You will enjoy working with this lovely yarn. It is soft with good stitch definition and shows off this variation of peacock stitch which is re-designed to mimic flames.” It’s a wise pattern; it instructs you to pick up a stitch in the space between the heel flap and the instep sts, and this little touch will teach beginners that there need never be a gap there. As a bonus, there is a lovely 2-page short story by the designer: “Maya and the Legend of the Firewalker Socks”. Gift with purchase!
