On an episode of my father’s favorite show, Seinfeld, Elaine spends an exorbitant amount of time searching for the perfect socks for her picky boss, Mr. Pitt. My father has deemed these simple socks the solution to “Mr. Pitt’s paradox”. They are sized to fit a typical adult man.


Foot instructions should read:

Round 1 and all following rounds: K3, P1 across 40 stitches and K remaining 40 stitches (bottom of foot).
Repeat until foot measure 2 inches less then desired length.
