Knitting pattern for stranded Icelandic socks - Eldfjall
Eldfjall is a unisex sock pattern featuring stranded colourwork. It is knit cuff down with a heel flap and rounder heel. The gusset decreases are positioned at the bottom of the foot. Eldfjall is the Icelandic word for volcano, and the Icelandic vulcanoes inspired this sock.
