This is a lovely fine grained textured unisex sock that works best with a solid or semi-solid yarn colour. The pattern is a textured two round repeat that looks and feels great on your foot.

Fireweed comes in three different sizes and has two heel options. There is a lot of flexibility in this sock to allow you to customise based on your preferences. This is a great sock for an experienced sock knitter looking for a fun TV knit or someone who wants to try socks for the first time.

This pattern is a top down sock pattern written for DPNs. Both a traditional heel using an eye of partridge heel flap and a german short row heel are explained.

toe shaping is a wedge toe with kitchener stitch.

you will need 2 mini skeins or 1 larger skein of any sock yarn. Fireweed works best with solid coloured yarns or some small variegation. It does not work well with self-striping yarns.
