Double Dutch Children's Socks
Simple and quick twisted stitch and rib make them fun to knit, and stay up on those precious, chubby, toddler legs. The fluid toe-up design has arch gussets and calf gussets which work well to blend the lovely hand-dyed sock yarns. This in an intermediate pattern employing several increase techniques, Judy’s Magic Cast On, short rows, and twisted stitches. Instructions are mostly in written form, with a set of charts for the calf gusset section.
