A note about sizing
Socks are meant to be worn with negative ease. This means that when selecting size you should choose a size that is 1.5 -3” less than the circumference of the foot and ankle. If there is a large difference between the foot and ankle, select the size for the foot and adjust the needle size for the leg to make it larger or smaller. The length of the foot is customizable, however it is important to check your gauge and adjust your needle size as necessary.
Do not assume that you will use the same size needles that are called for in the pattern. I cannot emphasize this strongly enough. This is just a suggestion, and every knitter is different. In the case of this pattern, if your gauge is too loose you may not have enough of the foot pattern to show off the design to best effect, you may run out of yarn, and you may find that your sock develops holes more quickly.
This pattern contains both charts and written instructions for all stitch patterns.
I recommend a solid or semi-solid yarn to avoid obscuring the stitch patterns.
