Design for Round 1 of Sock Madness 7 (2013).

From the pages of Sock Madness 6: “The Dreaded Sockdolager, an evil creature 14 and a half metres tall, the color of burnt orange acrylic yarn and smelling of old boots, lives in a tower - to be precise, a crumbling turret of an ancient castle overlooking the Borgo Pass . The Sockdolager likes to suck the dye out of yarn, and leave the knitters with little shreds of slimy chalky colored yarn.”

~Story courtesy of Celticmemory and Knitterpiper.

Knit cuff down with a modified version of the fleegle heel. The pattern stitch brings a touch of whimsy to self-striping yarns.

Pattern has both charts and written instructions.
