The hike to Manoa Falls on Oahu isn’t that difficult, but it requires a bit of attention as you step over roots and dodge low hanging branches. If it has rained recently, you’ll likely encounter mud and mosquitos, and last part of the trip is strewn with boulders. If you go, you’ll see young and old making the trek through the beautiful Hawaiian rain forest and all are rewarded with a magnificent view of the falls.

Similarly, this sock pattern isn’t that tricky, but it is chock full of cables, increases, and decreases which make the journey a challenge. However, once you get used to the rhythm of the pattern, the going gets easier and at the end you’ll be rewarded with a fabulous FO.
