This pattern was published in print in Canadian Living magazine, November 2010, and was made available for free on the Canadian Living website shortly after.
Some time in 2016 the web link was made inactive and is no longer available to my knowledge. My apologies! I did not make this decision.
There is an archived web version here:
A basic, warm and cozy sock pattern for Canadian Living, November 2010 issue! Available on newsstands in October. Pattern also available on Canadian Living online.
If you have multiple colours of yarn in your yarn stash that you’d like to use up, try working the heel and toe in a separate colour or working in stripes.
