Looking for something more interesting than straight stripes for your socks, but not so interesting as to demand attention?

Included:
Both written pattern and charts
Full directions and a cheatsheet to cut out and carry in your bag
Tips (with photographs) on how to minimize holes while picking up gusset stitches
Step-by-step Kitchener stitch instructions for grafting toes shut

Sizes:
Adult Medium (7.5”) and Large (8.5”) foot circumference
(Medium stretches comfortably over an 8” foot)
