Mistletoe KAL

Yarn: Rozetti : Always Dreams
Color: 116-10 (It’s like variegated Olive Green)
Content: 75% Acrylic / 25% Wool
Care: Machine wash cold, lay flat
Needles: US 2 / 2.75mm
Gauge: 7sts per inch
Pattern: Mistletoes
Modifications: Had to make the heel larger. Started gusset 1" earlier, increasing by 32 instead of 20. Only decreased heel down to 28 for 48 total stitches, instead of 20 and 40.

This is a paid KAL ran by the designer Mindy Vasil in her Ravelry Group , Minknit Designs. I am a fan of her patterns and it was only a $1.50 for the pattern.

These are not great pictures due to bad indoor lighting. It snowed again today and it's overcast outside, so not good outdoor shots.

A much better fit in the heel/ankle area.


The honecomb heel is not very obvious in this yarn, due to it's already light and dark variegation.

Still enjoying this sock pattern. May make another pair in a different color! But first the last clue is out and I need to finish the cuffs!


  1. Beautiful socks and yarn. Inspiring!! Maybe I could cast on for a sock?

  2. Great sock knitting! I have not tried toe up yet.Enjoy your videos on you tube and all your blooging,keep returning to read more stuff!

  3. So you knit both at the same time on dps?
    Good idea!
