#29 Classic Socks for the family
This is consistently one of the best selling patterns in my line. I like to put as much into a pattern as I can so that you really get your “moneys worth”. The sock pattern includes instructions sized for Babies through Men in 3 different yarn wts (fingering, sport & worsted) and 5 different pattern sts (plain stockinette, color socks & 3 different ribs). I work very hard to write instructions that are easy to follow. Socks can be intimidating to knit and I want knitters to have fun and be successful.
When knitting socks (or any item) make sure that you make a test gauge. Socks are knit a bit tighter than say a sweater because if socks are knit loosely they wear out quickly and they just feel awful in your shoes. Also, natural fibers work best so that your feet can breath. The first pair of socks that I ever knit were made with an acrylic blend yarn and my gauge was loose…ugh…lesson learned.
Happy Sock Knitting!!!
