A "Denise's Favorites" Pattern
After knitting lots and lots of plain vanilla type socks, I found myself teaching others to make them too. This pattern was first written for a class to use and has been tested by many students. I included 4 sizes so you can make these for a wide variety of feet.
This easy to follow pattern is written for beginners and beyond in sizes to fit the whole family. It's almost like magic! Make your socks with a plain stockinette cuff or with ribbing in one of two different options. This is a great pattern even for beginning sock knitters with enough explanation to get you through the rough patches.
Pattern requires fingering weight sock yarn with about 215 - 230 yards per 50 grams. Extra yarn may be needed for extra-long cuffs or larger men's sizes.

I learned to knit when I was about 6 or 7 years old. It soon became a passion that I have honed over the years by knitting for myself, my husband and our 8 children as well as many other friends and family members. Our first grandchild is drowning in knits!
I taught most of our children how to knit and have taught others through my LYS over the past several years. I love sharing my passion with other knitters! My latest projects have often included lace and Norwegian designs that look more difficult than they really are, Honest!
I started designing patterns to use in the classes I was teaching. Because of that many of my patterns are for basics. The knitting muse has been taking me to new things lately though! I hope you enjoy seeing what I am doing.
Thanks for your interest in my work. Happy knitting!
