This anklet is knitted top down with a ribbed heel flap and a wedge toe. I call this a "follow the yarn" pattern. The instep pattern zig zags as your yarn changes color... or you just feel like it. This makes the pattern complement the way your yarn stripes instead of fighting it.

I have been doing some type of needle craft for as long as I can remember. When I was really little, it was crochet and embroidery. I finally learned how to knit in high school and really took off with it in college. Now I am designing my own patterns. I love intricate yet intuitive designs, so expect a lot of lace, cables, and colorwork in my patterns.
