This simplistic and beginner-friendly sock design is worked cuff down. The slip stitches create an elegant pattern throughout the whole sock and the rib ensures a comfortable fit. The DK weight yarn is knitted with 2.0 mm needles to create a firm and durable fabric.

A couple of months ago I started going to ballet classes. The elegant look in combination with the strict lines of the sock design reminded me of this fascinating type of dance and the barre which is an essential part of the ballet training.

Adult XS, S, M, L (CO 60, 64, 68, 72 sts)
with an ankle width of about 6.7/7/7.5/7.9 inches or 17/18/19/20 cm (unstretched).
Due to the stretchy effect of ribbing the sock can comfortably accomodate an ankle circumference up to 9/9.5/9.8/10.2 inches or 23/24/25/26 cm

30 stitches x 44 rounds in stockinette

Before casting on please make sure to knit a swatch to check if your gauge is correct. If your gauge is off, consider knitting a different size or using different needles.
