I guess I don't know what "endpapers" are....something to do with newspaper boys? Sorry, just a wild guess. I would love to make these, but having done no knitting in about 25 yrs I'm wondering if you have any instructions to make them plain, no pattern. I would love to try to make a pair for my neice, who likes to text a lot. I just love them!!

Ya' know, I have no idea why they are called "endpapers" either, but like you I wondered too! You can make them plain without any trouble. I guess you could do that in a number of ways. I think the easiest way would be to follow the chart, ignoring the color coded part (treat the chart as if it were all one color) and add the gusset increases where noted.

Oops, I added the comment before I was done.... I should also note that I DID NOT do the cast on that the pattern suggested, I tried it, but didn't like it at all. I did a simple knit 1, purl 1 ribbing instead. They go really fast, you'll enjoy making them!! They are the perfect gift for a "texter"! Good luck!
