NOTES

-Instructions are written for the Magic Loop method of working in the round, with a toe-up sock construction.

-Instructions are to be worked from the beginning to end of each round, unless instructions are specified for stitches on first needle of the round (N1; top of foot/front of leg), and second needle of the round (N2; sole of foot/back of leg), separately.

-We recommend using a toe-up cast on such as Judy’s Magic Cast On, and a stretchy bind off such as Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off for beginning and finishing your socks. You will also need to know how to work short rows by wrapping stitches.

-Stitch counts are written for Small Size with {Medium,Large} Size stitch counts in brackets.
