A "Denise's Favorites" Pattern After knitting lots and lots of plain vanilla type socks, I found myself teaching others to make them too. This pattern was first written for a class to use and has been tested by many students. I included 4 sizes so you can make these for a wide variety of feet. This easy to follow pattern is written for beginners and beyond in sizes to fit the whole family. It's almost like magic! Make your socks with a plain stockinette cuff or with ribbing in one of two different options. This is a great pattern even for beginning sock knitters with enough explanation to get you through the rough patches. Pattern requires fingering weight sock yarn with about 215 - 230 yards per 50 grams. Extra yarn may be needed for extra-long cuffs or larger men's sizes.
