So … the man in your life wants a pair of socks. He wants them with nearly no pattern at all, he wants them in a manly colour, and his feet are large. You love him, may he get his socks. But you don’t want to fall asleep while knitting them.
These socks are basically ribbed socks, there is a little bit of texture added to keep you awake. For a size 44 you will need about 330 meters of fingering sock yarn. The pattern is written for 70 stitches in the round, but can be adapted to become a 60 stitches sock.
