This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

This pattern was my contribution to Pennies per Hour of Pleasure or p/hop, a charity knitting project that was raising funds for Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders. As p/hop website no longer exists, the pattern is available for downloading on Payhip (with Pay What You Want option) and Ravelry. If you choose to download the pattern, please consider donating even a tiny amount of money for charity.

Pattern features:

  • can be knitted either cuff down or toe up (both instructions are included in the same file)

  • instructions written for magic loop but also dpns can be used

  • instructions written in metric and US terminology

  • four sizes: small (60 sts), medium (66 sts), large (72 sts) and extra-large (78 sts)

  • short row heel with amini gussets
