Brownie’s Sock Recipe tosses in a little of this and dash of that to cook up a yummy, cozy pair of socks. A bit like a choose your own adventure novel, you can pick different options as you go and then make another pair of socks with a different set of options. The pattern is written for three sizes so that you can knit up socks for men and
women. The socks work well for self striping, solid/semisolid, and speckled yarns and the modified purl-ridge rib and garter stitch options provide a material that molds to the foot.

The pattern is written so that the knitter can use their preferred sock needle method. Additionally, a short video link is provided in the pattern. The video goes over the inspiration behind the pattern, a quick tour of the options, and a demonstration of the short row garter heel.
