Exito (pronounced Eck-See-Toe) means “Success” in Spanish. Slip stitch patterns are fun to work but usually don’t have the elasticity needed for the legs of socks. By using larger needles and giving the stitches to be slipped an extra wrap on the needles you can successfully use this easy knitting technique. These socks are knit cuff-down to the toe and feature the traditional heel flap and gusset construction method. Directions are given both in charts as well as Line-by-line written instructions on the last page.
