Pattern Details

Socks are a small fun project, a mini engineering miracle, an art form in themselves. They are ideal travelling knitting and are always a welcome gift - if you can bear to part with them. This pattern gives directions for fine stocking stitch ankle socks for gauges 6.5 - 8 sts/inch, to fit ankle sizes from 8 - 10".
