In “ye olde” days, there was a burger chain that claimed you could “have it your way.” This sock pattern will let you “have it your way” too. Mix and match cuff, heel, toe, and even yarn weight to create a sock exactly your way.
Though it looks like I am tag spamming, this pattern really does include all those options. Included are cuff down and toe up instructions, with a variety of heel, toe, and cuff options. It is like getting 18 patterns in one.
Worked in worsted weight yarn, it is a super quick gift or a cozy around-the-house sock; worked in fingering weight it is the perfect ankle sock.
Pattern contains full instructions for fingering or worsted weight yarns with customization options for the best possible fit.
Depending on options chosen, suitable for the advanced beginner to intermediate knitter. Skills required – basic stitches, knitting in the round, increases, decreases, slipped stitches, pick up and knit, short rows. Additional skills for some versions – grafting, basic knowledge of cables and lace, German short rows.
