Every knitter should have a basic sock pattern in their arsenal! These are basic, cuff down socks with a slipped stitch heel. I like to make notes and keep track of where I am on my pattern while I knit, so I’ve left spaces throughout the pattern to do that if you’d like, plus check boxes next to each step if you like to keep track of what steps you’ve completed. Also, if you are a beginner knitter, or if this is your first time knitting socks, I’ve bolded any terms in this pattern that might be helpful to look up online. There are many helpful knitting tutorials available out there for free! There are also pictures throughout this pattern to guide you as well.
