The show-off in the name refers to showing off your yarn, especially if it’s variegated. The pattern stitch is fun and easy and looks pretty in almost all yarns. In order to make the pattern more interesting, I used a different architecture - the gusset is knitted at the same time as the heel “flap” which is done in the main pattern stitch. Instructions for 3 different gusset patterns are included.

Note - as of 5/27/08 a correction was made to the heel for the Large size only. As of 7/4/14 the previous correction was further corrected.
