One of the items I knit most often as a charity project are socks. These socks knit top down with an integrated heel are worked entirely in ribbing patterns. The advantage of this kind of pattern is that thanks to the ease of rib the socks fit slightly smaller or bigger circumferences comfortably, which is perfect when the exact size of the recipient is not known.

Material
1 skein of fingering weight yarn with a yardage of approximately 400 m (437 yds) per 100 g (sufficient up to a foot length of approximately 30 cm 11.75”)
Used in the sample: Hedgehog Fibres Sock (400 m 437 yds / 100 g; 90% Wool, 10% Nylon) in a one of a kind colourway (Potluck)
2.25 mm / US size 1 DPNs or circular needle(s) for your preferred way to knit in the round
2 stitch markers, yarn needle

Gauge
32 sts /42 rows = 10 cm/4” in Stockinette Stitch, blocked

Size and measurements
S, M, L and XL to fit leg circumference 17.5 (20, 22.5, 25) cm 7 (8, 9, 10)”. Leg length results in 20.5 (20.5, 22, 22) cm 8 (8, 8.75, 8.75)” when knit as given in the pattern, adjustable. Foot length is adjustable.
Please note that the circumference measurements are based on the gauge in Stockinette Stitch. The ribbing patterns used for leg and instep have some ease; each size fits slightly smaller and bigger circumferences comfortably.

The pattern was originally designed for the Spring 2020 Charity Craftalong held in the Knitter’s Pride group (English) and the Knit Pro group (German).
