These socks came about because I was knitting socks for Tom; hence, Tomsocks! The pattern is fun to knit and garners compliments even while in progress. The stitch pattern has exciting effects on some variegated sock yarns--try it out!
Any sock- or fingering-weight yarn should work with this pattern. It’s easy to modify the length of the foot, the calf, and the cuff.
Required stitches and techniques:
knit, purl, make one, yarnover, slipping stitches, passing slipped stitches over other stitches, short rows.
