When I was designing these socks, I was inspired by the yarn color,Train Station and the stitch pattern which resembles train tracks. The name Midnight Train was a natural progression in this process. Designed for my husband, these make great unisex socks that fit perfectly due to the ribbing. I hope you’ll enjoy knitting these!

Pattern Notes
This sock is worked toe-up with a short row heel. Instructions are designed for using magic loop method, but use your favorite way to work in the round.
The pattern includes a mini gusset on the instep of the foot, providing some extra room around the heel for a better fit, which is entirely optional.
