Hacienda del Tucson Socks - Knitting Pattern PDF
This self-striping sock pattern includes options for two leg lengths, either ankle length or low calf length. The design includes plenty of eyelets to keep feet from overheating on warm days. These socks are worked from the leg down with Shadow Wrapped short row heels and star toes so there is no grafting required.
If you are new to Shadow Wrapped short row heels don't worry. Short row heels are a lot faster and easier than you may think.
