January 1960
Light Fingering ?
9.5 stitches and 13 rows = 1 inch
in stockinette stitch
US 1 - 2.25 mm
621 - 828 yards (568 - 757 m)
up to foot size 11 (sizes 11 1/2 and up)

Designed for men, these socks feature a knit/purl textured pattern that looks like evergreen trees flanked by triangular pennants. The design is centered on the front and back of the leg and continues down the top of the foot.

Although the sock is designed for men, it could be modified for a smaller size by adjusting the number of stitches on either side of the evergreen trees.

Two leg lengths are given: from top of cuff to bottom of heel flap, 13 1/2” (11” leg only); and 10 1/2” (8” leg only).

Regarding yardage amounts, the smaller amount is for all sizes if knitting the shorter length leg, and also foot sizes up to 11 in the longer length, while the larger amount is for sizes 11 1/2 and up in the longer length.

The pattern is written line by line.
