Burning Stripes (Cuff Down)

"Here's a simple sock pattern that is lit with excitement generated by easy bright stripes in long color runs," understates Luni. "The design features a boomerang heel that looks tricky but is easier than a standard short row heel and a striped toe. It includes a simple method for changing colors and carrying the color not in use, incorporating a decorative seam stitch which can be used to place increases or decreases to shape the sock-- could be knee socks! (Shown) is version 4, a re-edited, reorganized and improved version which includes detailed instructions for three sizes, row-by-row heel instructions, a 'practice' heel tutorial with photos for those who are unfamiliar with short row heels, and many helpful hints regarding sizing and color changes."

Credit must be given to Amy Jones, the tech editor who made these improvements possible.
