Summary: Top-down socks, Bamboo Stitch.

The pattern suggests these colors:

  • Ivory #0204, 2 balls
  • Fern #9806, 1 ball

The pattern would probably only require 2 balls of yarn (340 yards), if knit in one color.

Description from the pattern:
These β€œwalking socks” combine 2 great stress relievers – knitting and exercise. The Bamboo stitch is very easy since the pattern stitch is worked in only 1 round out of 4. Bamboo stitch works especially well with the stretch yarn.
