It can be hard to find a compromise between socks men will wear and socks you will knit. The Gentleman Socks use a sophisticated textured rib to keep the knitting interesting for you. While knitting these, men were constantly complimenting me on the socks so these are sure to be a winner for the gentleman in your life! They make great socks for women too. This free pattern contains four adult sizes.
NOTE: Due to the large amount of twisted traveling stitches in this pattern it requires more yardage than normal. Due to differences in tensioning these types of stitches yardage for a given size can vary widely. Be sure to have some extra yarn or be prepared to make shorter legs.
