Notes

Gauge was off since I’m using 2.5mm needles instead of the required 2.25mm (I have 8 sts/inch instead of 9), but the intended recipient of the socks has big feet & big calves, so I decided to leave it like that to accommodate a bigger leg. The cuff was worked over the required 72 sts for an 1¼“, then I reduced 4 sts as the seed stitch section started.

The heel was worked over 34 sts instead 36.

For the foot, I continued the gusset decreases until I reached 64 sts instead of 72. The rest of the pattern was worked the same.
