For the longest time I could NOT knit socks and I really wanted to, so I decided to go from a basic pattern and make up my own so I could make pair after pair! This is the result. I tried to word it so you can understand how to do each step. In addition to the socks pattern, you also get 4 FREE gift wraps to print out and then cut and tape or glue around the outside of a pair of socks to make them look gift wrapped. These wraps truly make your hand-knitted socks a treasure! As always you are welcome to sell any pairs of socks you make from my pattern. These are the only socks I ever knit now, and I have added a little variation which you can adopt too if you wish. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Casting on, knitting, turning a heel (I describe it though), tunisian cast off GAUGE 7 sts = 1" and 9 rows = 1" SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Fits ladies size 7-10 shoes but can be adjust by doing more or fewer rows too.
