Pattern Description from MarnieMacLean.com: “This is my first sock pattern so I’ve kept the construction very simple, relying on a beautiful yarn and a simple but unique stitch pattern to make it stand out. My foot is rather shapely, in that the ball of my foot is quite wide while the arch is a bit thinner. Because of this, most socks don’t hug my foot quite as much as I’d like. I’ve resolved this dilemma by working the back of the sock in ribbing. For years, people have knit simple tube socks entirely in ribbing to good result. By adding a proper toe and heel, the fit is as customized as possible. But, I will provide instructions for a rib-free foot as well, if you feel it would be more comfortable.”
