Knit Original Cuff-Down Socks taught by Donna Druchunas

Warm, cozy and cute that's what your feet will be when you put them in hand-knit socks. Inspired, happy and proud that's how you'll feel when you're the one who knit them by hand.

What are you most proud of? Figuring out what size needles and how many stitches to use in order to make a pair of men's size 8 socks.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes a bit of calculating to figure out how many stitches to use, and what size needles to get the right size. A test swatch is a great tool!

I love your socks but I'm not sure which of the patterns you used from the workshop. Can you let me know? Or if it was a different pattern, could you share the name? THANKS!

These are the 'seaweed' pattern. I cast on 40 stitches and did 2.5" of k1 p1 ribbing. In the last row of ribbing, I decreased 1 stitch, and worked pattern over 39 stitches. I hope this helps!
