♫ The Music ♫
BrunuhVille is a Portuguese composer who, his website states, “creates a world of magic and fantasy between the fusion of Gothic, orchestral, Celtic, folk, movie, ethnic and world music.” His Dance With Dragons is an epic composition that brings fantasy to life.


These top-down socks feature two beautiful Celtic cable knot designs – a modified ‘happiness’ knot often depicted on jewelry and a ‘figure 8’ knot which has been found to decorate items from sword hilts to floor tiles1. The heel flap is worked in a standard slip stitch pattern while the sole is worked in Stockinette stitch. Toe stitches are grafted; a link to Grafting Sock Toes without Ears is included in the pattern.

Cable patterns are charted only.
