Business in the Front - Party in the Back! This design is what happens when an innocent looking group of cables decide to mix it up when they hit the gusset! Mullet Socks are constructed from the toe up, and feature a tricked-out no-flap gusset heel. This pattern is written for three widths, and the instructions are provided in text and charts for DPN, Magic Loop, and Two Circular Needle methods.

Washing Instructions for all Sock Yarns: Hand washing in cool water is recommended to prolong the life of any hand-knit or hand-crocheted item. This yarn may also be gently machine washed in cool water. Roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring), and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
