My new socks are knitted toe up and have an easy colourwork after the toe and before the cuff. The pattern is totally ‘beginner-friendly’, as it’s pretty detailed. Although I have given exact measurements for the foot and leg lengths, those are adjustable.The My Man’s socks pattern isn’t only for men, play with the colours and knit them for women or children.
The pattern contains charts and written instructions, photo and video tutorials. It has been professionally tech edited and test knitted. Have fun!
