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!

Difficulty: EASY
Included: 4-page PDF pattern includes clear tips and instructions with the beginner in mind. Pattern is written for a set of four double-pointed needles, but a note explains how to easily convert to two circular needles. Photos and written instructions illustrate tricky concepts.

I have been "crafting" ever since I was little, with plenty of help from two very artistic grandmothers and a mom who taught me to sew at the age of nine. I haven't looked back, and now I sew, knit, (and design in both mediums), crochet (although it's not my favourite), scrapbook, paint, and cook! (Cooking can be a craft, right?)
