“Pretty Little Things” have a knitted-in cuff extending from the sock into a wide folded hem, hugging your ankles and keeping them toasty warm from two finely knit stockinette layers. A picot edge trim & simplest of color stranded motifs adorn, yet the back of the stranding work stays hidden inside the layers. Old-fashioned & modestly pretty, with timeless feminine charm. Classic construction, knit on two circular needles, top-down, using provisional cast-on, and worked entirely in stockinette stitch. Two colors & five sizes.

Appropriate for sock knitters who have knit conventional socks but are ready for a challenge, as there is a lot of instruction in this pattern, oriented to 2-circular needle method.
