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
Modifications: Started the gusset about an inch earlier than suggested and increased to 52 stitches on needle 2 instead. I did the turn of the heel how the pattern said, which I ended up with 60 stitches on needle 2. I worked the honeycomb heel until I had 28 stitches left on needle 2. This has worked wonderfully for fit. Besides more room for my ankle/heel, it also makes for a longer heel flap, which I prefer. I only did one repeat of the pattern for the cuff. I also did 8 rows of ribbing instead of 4. For the bind-off I did it in ribbing with a yarn-over after every 2.
This was a paid KAL ran by the designer Mindy Vasil in her Ravelry Group , Minknit Designs. I am a fan of her patterns.
The other sock.
A close-up of the heel, the patterning does not work well, due to the light and dark variegation of the yarn I used, but the heel itself is super comfy.
The Mistletoe stitch.
The sock on, still wearing them as I type this.
Sock on from a side view. You can see it fits very well.
You can see a little more of the definition of the heel when it is on, but not by much.
