This top-down, boot or knee sock in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) features the deep ribbing and horizontal knit/purl motifs of a classic gansey sweater. Shaping throughout the upper leg is adjustable to ensure a proper fit. Easy-to-work motifs make this project a good traveler that is readily converted to toe-up construction.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
