Socks any way you’d like them – toe-up, top-down or even legwarmers – all in this design. Using approx 300 yards of worsted-weight sock yarn and US size 6 needles, you’ll have these knitted up in no time … and on your feet to keep you cozy thru the winter. The foot-apparel is sized to fit an average woman’s foot/leg with directions on how to increase for shapely calves and longer feet. The sole of the sock is knit in RevSS so that the smooth, knit-side touches your feet – this makes for a much more comfortable sock. If you prefer, just do k sts where I tell you to purl for the sole. The heel shown is a short-row garter heel.

NOTE: You should be familiar with knitting socks and knitting in-the-round; for information about casting-on for toe-up or other techniques, check YouTube and Ravelry.
