Pattern Description:

The Wicked Witch of the West is taking her revenge on you, unsuspecting knitter! This twisted construction begins with an evil cable that gets kitchenered together, encircling the ankle.

Finally, take a little break by finishing up with a simple k2, p2 ribbed leg, neatly concluded with an I-cord bindoff. Ready for the challenge?
