Pattern Description:

Stave off second sock syndrome with the Escalator Socks. The first sock is worked cuff-down in an easy knit and purl stitch pattern with a garter ridge eye-of-partridge heel flap and pointed toe that requires no grafting. The second sock has the same features but is worked toe-up instead. The pattern comes in 3 adult sizes and instructions are provided for the stockinette anklet variation. Escalator is an easy pattern to knit but has enough novelty to keep your attention through both socks.
