Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round

Pattern Description:

If you have been eager to start knitting socks but the idea of working heels, heel flaps, gussets and "the terrible Kitchener stitch" discourages you from trying, perhaps you'd like to try my EZ Ladies Zig Zag Tube Socks. You won't have to worry about any of the above mentioned techniques!

If you are a veteran sock knitter but you're looking for a quick and easy attractive sock pattern, you may wish to try my pattern too. Or maybe you're making a sock as a gift but you're not sure what size the recipient wears? These socks will fit older girls, teens and ladies, no matter what size shoe they wear.

The only thing you need to know is how to knit in the round. If you can do that, I'll handle working you through the sock. It's really surprisingly easy!

As with all my designs, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions as you're working through the pattern; just Email me at the address listed in the pattern. I want you to have fun making your socks and end up with a result you are proud of.

Thank you!
