Note: This pattern is an updated version of the "Classic Sock" pattern included in the 1994 edition of Folk Socks.

From the book:

The classic sock is worked with a simple rib pattern down the leg and on the top of the foot (the instep), which is my preference. But if you prefer, you could work the ribbing on the leg only or work the ribbing for just 2.5” (6.5 cm) for the cuff, and then work the rest of the leg and foot in stockinette. The sock shown has a Round Heel and Wedge Toe.

Additional Size Information: Five sizes are included, from child’s to men’s.

Additional Yarn Information: Carnation, 1 skein

Notions: Marger; reinforcing thread for heel and toe (optional); tapestry needle
