I was startled when two of my young friends on Ravelry were diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2010, I participated in my first Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk in their honor, and released my first fundraising pattern, Pink Lemonade. In 2012, I will be walking again. Every dollar spent on Stomp Out Cancer will be donated, funding research, patient services, and prevention efforts.
This pattern uses unconventional shaping. Summaries are given at the beginning of each new section as a guide to what you’ll be doing. Achieving the correct row gauge is important; but unlike with most patterns, stitch gauge need not be exact.
The socks are knit from the toe up. You may use dpns, 2 circulars, or magic loop. Written instructions are provided along with the chart to help you through the patterned heel flap, which is the most challenging section.
Although the pattern is only written for one size, the finished socks are stretchy and will fit a wide range of feet.
