... the 'Bavarian Socks' pattern, from CAST ON magazine winter 2002-2003, is a Karen E. Williams design.
Plan to take your time - you'll need a lot of it - if you decide to make a pair of these, every knit stitch is a 'k tbl ' until you get to the heel and sole for this version - also, no contrasting frou frouy eylash cuff here. This particular SRH is my first attempt at one from a Regia pattern booklet, aka a 'boomerang' heel??
These socks were started over a month ago and I've just started working on the foot portion today, it didn't help that I made many mistakes and started and restarted various trial heels like this frogged 'eye of partridge' one.
eta; here's a similar pattern by Eunny Jang, now editor of Interweave Knits magazine
Also OTN is the GAL, almost to the second corner when I decided to take a break from it.
