These socks are begun with a Bosnian-style, square garter-stitch toe; they can be adjusted to fit a variety of sizes and are easily tested to check the fit of the foot. Beginning at the toe has many advantages: custom fit, last-minute size adjustments, and for the knitter's peace of mind, once past the ankle, you can continue to work up the leg until you have used up almost half of the yarn and know that you have sufficient for the second sock. This pattern is included in my collection "Cool Socks Warm Feet" If you like this pattern, be sure to check out my Craftsy class, My First Socks, with lifetime access and a 100% money-back guarantee: BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round GAUGE For a sock to wear well it is important to knit a dense fabric.
