I was 12 and my brother 10 when we took a bus to California to visit my aunt, uncle and cousins. We camped at Yosemite. As we exited the Wawona Tunnel, I was unprepared for the spectacular view of Yosemite’s geologic wonders. I know El Capitan is bigger but I just could not stop staring at Half Dome. I still have my scrapbook from that trip!

Rising nearly 5,000 feet above Yosemite Valley and 8,800 feet above sea level, Half Dome is a Yosemite icon. An image of Half Dome appears on the California State quarter, released in January 2005.

Half Dome was originally called “Tis-sa-ack,” meaning Cleft Rock in the language of the local Native Americans. Tis-sa-ack is the name of a Mono Lake Paiute Indian girl in a Yosemite Native American legend and the face seen in Half Dome is supposed to be hers.

Knit from cuff to toe with a cabled and rib pattern, a Dutch heel and a Weldon’s Star Toe these are a treat for the novice sock knitter and experienced as well. The stitch pattern accommodates average and wider feet!

Thank you for looking at my pattern.

Must knit now,
