All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmerman, “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

Errata
pyok: sl 3rd st on left needle over the first 2 sts, and let it drop off needle, then k1, yo, k1.

Leg round: Work Leg Chart, repeating sts 9-10 as indicated, around.
Work until you have competed all 18 rounds three times, and continue until you have completed 4 (16, 12) rnds of the next repeat.

I am the type of knitter who always has at least one pair of socks on the needles. They are the perfect portable project and start off like a blank canvas for trying out just about any type of stitch pattern. Plus, nothing beats a pair of hand knitted socks when the temperature takes a plunge (which is quite early here in Minnesota)!

These socks use the Strong Heel, which is an incredibly clever heel created by Gerdine Crawford-Strong. There are no stitches to pick up and, when worked in ribbing, the heel hugs the foot for a perfect fit. I recommend using a solid or semisolid yarn for this pattern so that the delicate stitchwork doesn’t get hidden away.
