Anybody’s sock is a sock to suit Anybody! Choose yarn to make it gender specific and the design will please anybody! The written pattern is simple enough and detailed enough for a sock newbie and the finished product is attractive enough to make a knitter proud. I’ve designed around the tactile sensitive in my family (Asperger’s). You have to peel them off the ceiling if there’s a bump in their shoes! So, these socks have no pattern or seams below the shoe line that would set off alarm bells among the sensitive foot set. I’m sure Asperger’s people are not the only ones who like a smooth sock line.

The pattern can also be knit in any fingering weight sock yarn. The pattern doesn’t compete with multicolor and looks grand in a solid.
