Clear instructions and pictures will guide you through the pattern, with suggestions and website references for techniques like “A new way to cast on for toes” starts with Provisional Cast on, then Short Row heels. Learn some new and useful techniques. Make a easy stranded sock that will fit you or a loved one perfectly.

Difficulty Rating: Average skill level!
Custom fit: Start with an outline of your foot and custom fit them. The nice thing about these socks is you can size them to fit any foot. Just try them on as you go. As long as your number of stitches is divisible by 10 they can be sized to any adult foot. The short row heel once you see the basic technique, it is easy to adjust for size. All the stitch numbers are merely suggested counts. So you can make these for anyone!

Based on the “Knit by the Dozen” sock pattern!
