Worked from the top down in a surprisingly easy stitch pattern that’s fun to knit and easy to remember, these socks are an exciting mix of 1 x 1 cables, yarn overs, and simple decreases. Fully customizable for both leg and foot length, these would also be appropriate for men - just work all yarn overs through the backs of the loops on the following row!

This pattern is very complete. It includes charts and text for all pattern stitches. The directions are thorough and instructions for both double points and magic loop are included.
