The lace pattern at the cuff of this sock is called “Fir Cone Lace”, but I’ve always thought the little circles looked like candle flames. When I found The Woolen Rabbit’s wonderful Harmony sock yarn at a festival in the color “Oh Ruby”, all I could think about was knitting it up into those little flames.
Pyromania was born of my love for socks with a little bit of interest, followed by lots of stockinette—perfect for bringing with me everywhere. After the lace panel finishes, the only detailing is a decorative decrease (balanced out by some increased stitches) on the side. They are knit cuff-down, with an eye of partridge heel flap and a standard toe.
