Knits editor Ann Budd designed the Ladder of Life socks to honor the men and women who work to save lives in our communities during times of need, not only during national crises like the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, but every day. We hope that you will join us in a rally of appreciation by knitting them for your local firefighters and/or other rescue workers.

Finished size: 8 1/2 inches (9 1/2 inches) around foot and 9 inches (10 3/4 inches) from back of heel to toe. To fit a woman (man).
