Socks - Take 5
The Socks - Take 5 work well in a superwash wool blend.
The Take 5 ribbing is fun work, and the socks can be knit in just a few days making them the perfect gift or accessory. This may be considered an intermediate level pattern because knowledge of sock (and stitch) construction is helpful.
