Models knit in Wildflower DK by Plymouth Yarn Co.
See a sample in Fixation by Cascade below.
Sorbet Cooler in Fixation by Cascade:
From the pattern:
Seashell Shortie, Short Sport, and Sorbet Cooler are knitted top down with traditional heel and gusset shaping. Garden Partie is knitted top down with a wedge heel, sometimes called an afterthought heel.
I like short summer socks. If you prefer a taller cuff, there is enough yardage to add several inches to the cuff for a size 9 or smaller foot.
