Polar Vortex Brings Dangerous Cold Temperatures to the Midwest. The coldest, most dangerous blast of polar air in decades gripped the Midwest and pushed toward the East and South on Monday...-Huffington Post, Jan. 7, 2014.

-Polar vortex blamed for at least 21 deaths -Fox News. Jan. 8, 2014

When I first started working on this design, I was thinking Winter Wonderland, fun things like sledding, snow angels, and hot chocolate. Then, suddenly Winter wasn't so wonderful anymore and I was reminded of all the weather related tragedies that have occurred lately: floods, tornadoes, wild fires and now a polar vortex. As a result, I have decided to contribute 50% of the proceeds from the sale of this pattern to organizations that provide relief to the victims when these events occur.

This top down sock pattern combines simple lace panels with twisted stitches to create an easily memorized design. Directions are provided for 4 adult women's sock sizes, extra small, small, medium, and large, equivalent to women's shoe sizes US 6-6.5 (EU 36-37), US size 7-7.5 (EU 37.5-38), US 8-8.5 (EU 38.5-39), and US size 9-9.5 (EU 40-41). Directions include a fitted heel and simple arch shaping. Stitch pattern included only as chart.
