Notes

CO 72 st for cuff, then get rid of 2 for sock.
I love this pattern. It’s super-simple to memorize, and the purl diamonds let you know you’re actually making progress :) Worked my own favorite round heel and ordinary toe.

Work 8 reps, then divide for heel

Heel flap on 35 st for 20 ridges

Turn heel so that there are 13 st after 1st dec

work instep on 33 st (1 p st each side)

work instep for 8 reps

Redistribute stitches for toe!!

toe decreases EOR until 11 st remain

These socks used up all but a few yards of the yarn -- I’ll make the leg portion a little shorter next time just to be safe.
