Lady-like lace, reminiscent of an easy flow down the river, meanders from the cuff down on this simple sock. Our Party of Five set, just as enchanting as waterfalls, blends beautifully, promising an engaging knit from start to finish.

PATTERN NOTES
Sock is knit from the cuff down. Measurements are given in length to give stripes a uniform look. A unique feature is that the heel is worked in a short row method designed to allow the colours to flow uninterrupted, with no heel flap. To evenly split the mini skeins, I weighed each skein then separated it into 2 equal balls.
The sample socks were worked using the following colour sequence: Frostbite (Colour 1), Chill (Colour 2), Breeze (Colour 3), Bluebird (Colour 4), Sapphire (Colour 5).
