Pattern Details

These socks are worked with a fascinating pattern I found in Barbara Walker's second treasury. The design is worked with only 1 color per round, and the pattern is created by making elongated stitches and slipping other stitches. I chose light and dark solid colors with a variegated middle tone to create what I think looks like the false flames in the name of the stitch pattern. You can use any color you prefer for the cuff, heel and toe. GAUGE 32 sts and 42 rnds = 4"/10cm over False Flame pattern on larger needles.
