Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

I designed this to teach a class to beginners (Yes! BEGINNERS! You CAN knit socks!) There is nothing fancy about these socks--they can be knit BY anyone, FOR anyone.

These socks are knit from the cuff down in two basic ribbing styles. They have an eye-of-partridge Dutch Heel flap, and a classically-decreased toe.

These socks are formulaic in sizing: you can make them for anyone. Sample stitch counts for an adult sock is given throughout.

Choose a fun colourway of sock yarn and dive in--see how fun socks can be!
