“This is a great first sock pattern. You’ll need additional instructions for grafting (kitchener) stitch at the end.” - econtrady

They are written for me-size and Michael-size. The only feet I had available at the time! Since I wrote it in 2003 mostly to see if I could, I am sure there are many fun typos to amuse you! I’m a little afraid to look at it (kind of like re-reading the poetry you wrote back in high school), but I am glad to see that folks browse my free patterns page every now and then!

Incidentally, one of the fun typos is the incorrect gauge in the pattern itself. The correct gauge is listed on this page: 5 sts to 1 inch.

This great for a ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ on the legs. Just do a little math to make sure the selected stitch pattern comes out evenly.

I dug out a couple pairs for pictures - the pattern is written for plain legs, these are (obviously) fancier! But you get the idea.
