Choose one color of fingering weight sock yarn and enjoy the simple knit purl textures of this relaxing sock pattern. These socks are knit top-down, so you can easily customize the length of the leg and foot as you knit. A garter stitch heel flap hugs the heel. The textures include garter stitch, moss stitch, diagonal ribbing, and broken rib columns. You always have a new texture to look forward to, so the knitting never becomes boring. Enjoy these cozy textured Westknits socks and then try the other matching Dustland patterns like the Dustland Sweater or Dustland Shawl!
