Pattern Description:

A dramatic single-yarn sock, featuring an Estonian Fishtail stitch pattern. For maximum impact, choose a self-striping yarn with strong contrasts and abrupt colour changes. Two cuff options are given; a simple Wavy top or a more elaborate 'no swatching required' sideways sock top.
Instructions are also given for my short row heel.

This sock pattern also appears in my collection, "Cool Socks Warm Feet"
