This design is for advanced skill sock knitters. It is knit cuff down on two circular needles. The circulars are highly recommended due to the stranded intarsia motifs. Most of the sock is knit in the round with the exception of the leg which is knit flat, then seamed. Since the charts are challenging, the cuff, heel, gusset and toe are basic for peaceful knitting moments.
