Maximix Knee Socks are designed to combat the cold. Knit from the toe up to allow for maximum use of available yarn, these socks feature a wedge toe, a stranded sunburst pattern on the instep, and a short-row heel. A bit of corrugated ribbing starts the leg that uses a heavier-weight yarn to make the knitting quicker and the socks warmer. It all ends with a contrasting rolled cuff that may hold a bit elastic--because we all need a little help staying up sometimes.

This pattern is written for dpns. Contact the designer if you have questions about converting it to another method.

This relatively short pattern is intended as a framework for experienced sock knitters. As such, it is reasonably priced. Comments, questions and suggestions for improvements are welcomed. If corrections and improvements are made, the price may be adjusted accordingly.
