Inspired by the mysterious character Melisandre of Asshai from George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, this toe-up sock features a swirling rib pattern that blazes up the leg. As a priestess of the red god R’hllor, Melisandre claims to have prophetic visions when she gazes into the flames. Maybe she sees a pair of these sizzling socks in your future!

If you require a smaller size than the 64 st option, try knitting at a slightly tighter gauge (8.5-9 sts/inch).
