I love making socks! I spend hours pouring over stitch encyclopedias looking for just the right stitch for my socks. These socks are light and lacy and work up quickly. The pattern is easily memorized. They are toe up socks with an afterthought heel. No need to worry about short row shaping! For the intermediate crocheter.
