  • These socks are worked from the toe-up, using the Magic Loop method, beginning with Judy’s Magic Cast On technique. These socks also feature a Fleegle Heel (no pick ups!) and are bound off using Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off. Written instructions or links to tutorials are provided for each technique.

  • These socks are identical to one another; knit 2 to complete a pair. The pattern section varies in size based on the size of sock being knit. Be diligent in following sizing to ensure you are using the instructions/ chart for the size of sock being knit. Each chart and written set of instructions indicates size.

  • Instructions are provided for the smallest size, with larger sizes in parentheses. When only 1 set of instructions is provided, it applies to all sizes.

  • Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.

  • Written and charted instructions are provided for these socks. The written instructions and charts are broken down by size; you may not need to print every page of this pattern.
