Classically designed, these knit socks are a great gift idea as the colder weather approaches. Stitched from the top down in Patons Kroy Socks, pattern features 2 x 2 knit/purl ribbing, plus a simple 2-row striping pattern and a striped short-row heel with basic toe decreases and kitchener stitch to close the toe stitches. The possibilities are endless for the always-trendy striped effect that you can bring to life in any 2 colors to please your recipient.

Note: Heel is worked using Short turn Rows while also keeping continuity of Stripe Pat.
