Shooting Star Cuff Down Knitting Pattern
The Shooting Star Socks feature a fun cross-stitch pattern that’s fantastic for variegated yarns, but looks great in tonals and solids, too. While this pattern is written for double point needles, it can easily be converted to whatever needles you like to use for your socks - small circumference circulars, Magic Loop, or two circular needles.
If you prefer your socks cuff down, there's another version of the pattern for that!
