Strands of Gold is named after the colorway of the yarn I used; “Fools Gold”.
This pattern uses any toe-up cast on you desire but I have found that the following method to be very easy to start when using 4 needles for knitting in the round.

Different sizes can be achieved easily when using a toe-up pattern just by increasing the number of rows knit.

I use a short-row heel which eliminates having to pick up stitches along the arch.

I knit this pair with the pattern going up the top of the foot which caused it to shorten the top a bit. I tried to adjust for this by knitting as loosely as possible on the top and tighter for the sole.

I used a 2 X 2 ribbing for the cuff and used the following stretchy bind off.
