The fun texture on these socks is created using only knits and purls. The simple top down construction make them a perfect project for beginners, while the engaging stitch pattern make them an enjoyable knit for those with several (dozen) pairs of socks under their belt. The pattern is fully written and charted and comes in 2 adult sizes. The Shift socks have been approved by my husband who has very strict standards on “manly” stitch patterns for his socks. I am currently knitting him a pair in a “manly” color.
