This beginner-friendly sock is a basic, top down style with a traditional flap and gusset heel and a grafted toe. It works well with any fingering weight yarn in whatever dye pattern you like - solid colours, stripes and speckled yarns all work with this pattern.

Techniques Used:
• Knit and Purl
• Working small circumference in the round with DPNs, magic loop, or two circular needles
• Grafting/Kitchener Stitch

The BASIC collection of patterns by Unraveled are simple designs with no extra decoration to allow the knitter to focus on the shape and/or structure of the item they are making.
