Socks are my ideal choice for on-the-go knitting. Also ideal, is a stitch pattern that is easily memorized, while being interesting enough to hold my tiny attention-span! Add to that, a beautiful, glossy hand-dyed yarn, and you have Crocodile Rock! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Pattern calls for the use of Double Pointed Needles, but could be easily adapted for Magic Loop method, so knowledge of these two knitting methods are a plus. Also, knowledge of sock anatomy is helpful. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 8.5" foot circumference at ball of foot; 9.5" foot length from heel to big toe; 7" leg length from cuff to base of heel.
