Socks for the “no-fuss” person ~ simple yet interesting-to-knit ribbed leg for a great fit ~ traditional slip-stitch heel ~ Stockinette foot ~ wedge toe.

Choose navy or black yarn to create a great basic dress sock. The foot has not patterning so it’s a very fast knit and no bumps or lumps for those sensitive feet!

A 2-page picture tutorial is included for the Estonian Cast-On used in the model. Pattern also includes how-to instructions for grafting the toe.
