My First Socks
Taking your first steps…
Socks can seem like a daunting prospect to the novice knitter but this pattern is here to help in all those tricky places. Starting with a basic cuff down sock using the most common and simple construction methods, you’ll soon be on your way.
A full and clearly written pattern for a top down sock in a simple stitch design, a flap and gusset heel and rounded toe.
Written to be used as a first sock pattern but some basic knitting skills are required. Experience knitting in the round, particularly with magic loop would be useful.
