This is a basic cuff-down sock pattern in two sizes suitable for a beginning sock knitter or a more experienced knitter who is looking for a straightforward ribbed sock to show off their yarn (or for an easy carrying-around project). It is written for magic loop and is a great intro to that method, but can easily be adapted to dpns or two circulars.

The ribbing on the leg and top of the foot allows for maximum flexibility in sizing as it can stretch to accommodate a range of ankle & foot circumferences. It is also easy to change the stitch count to create a smaller sock such as for a child or a larger one.
