Xiomara features a geometric beaded cuff and a deep, deep vee feature on the front of the leg. The back of the leg has a cabled seam, framed by ribbed gusset increases, and the design is loosely mirrored on the foot.
Xiomara is worked from the cuff down, with a fleegle heel, and finished with a wedge toe. Both charts and written instructions are provided. (Because of this, the pattern is quite long! I’ve grouped the written instructions for each size together so you can easily skip printing the parts you don’t need.
A low-vision version of the pattern is also available. This version is written in 24 point sans serif font (Arial) in all black text. It has no italics. All of the directions are fully written out.
