Description from MagKnits:

How many times have I started a pair of socks only to find that the pattern isn’t doing the yarn justice? Or the yarn is creating havoc with the pattern? This pattern was designed for hand dyed yarn that has a tendency to pool, spiral, or stripe. For best results, use a hand-dyed yarn with four distinct color changes. The picked-up and passed-over stitches bring small accent shimmers into areas of pooling color. Knit from the toe-up, this pattern allows the knitter to try on the sock for size, and to adjust the length of the leg for those knitters with less voluptuous calves than the designer.
