I designed these socks for my beginner sock knitting class. They are an easy eyelet pattern that keeps the mind engaged while the knitting flows from the double pointed needles. NOTES: These are made cuff down. Pattern includes written instructions and pattern chart for eyelet pattern and heel stitches. Instructions are given for smallest size, with larger sizes in parentheses. When only 1 number is given, it applies to all sizes. Pattern could easily be made using two circulars by an accomplished knitter.
