These socks were knit on circular needles using Magic Loop.
If it is necessary to increase the number of stitches cast on, the base pattern is a multiple of 4. The added stitches will be worked within the charted area of the socks, and should only be necessary on the front of the leg/instep stitches.
A “pass-over” is used throughout, giving these socks are very nice texture.
I believe that an adventerous beginning sock knitter should be able to execute the knitting of these socks. The pattern is fairly simple and easily memorized.
I used my own hand painted yarn and it is available through my Etsy shop at www.hisglory.etsy.com
