Pattern Description:

Socks are the picture-perfect knitted gift, the one thing we all wear, and a cool way to fill up a sock drawer. This pattern uses knit and purl stitches only, making it fun and non-intimidating. It's a great take-along project. This pattern is knit in the round on DPN's.

These socks are a simple knit, simple design, and simple color changes. They are fun. And the reason I call them Not-So-Crazy Socks. You'll love this project.
