Made for my brother’s big feet, this is a top-down sock with a very subtle pattern. The pattern is charted only, no description, but it’s fairly easy to follow. The texture is entirely knit/purl based, and so it knits up pretty quickly. I’m not certain how much yarn you’ll need, it depends on how big the feet are you’re trying to cover. I used one skein for each foot, since I wanted to be safe, and I had quite a bit of extra at the end.
