Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

The heroine of Grounded, Hannah Rose, has some ... challenging and unpredictable talents. One of her skills that isn't in question, though, is her knitting. For that reason, we've created Rosie's FireStarters.
These socks are quick to knit with enough stockinette to make it a good, relaxed knitting project but enough patterning to keep you interested. A simple repeat of suggested flames runs breathlessly down the side of the sock creating a distinct left and right (read the notes to be sure you catch the proper placement of the heel flap for left and right).
