I designed this pair of socks for anyone who is looking for all the details on how to knit their first pair of socks top down on magic loop.

There is a video on YouTube to help you with any of the techniques in the sock pattern. This was made to accompany the pattern.

S (M, L)

To fit approx. Women’s Small (Women’s Medium, Women’s Large) or foot circumference of 6.7 (7.5 , 8.5)” / 17 (19.1, 21.5) cm

This pattern is written for a plain stockinette sock. You can add any type of texture to the pattern. I would recommend doing any pattern on Needle 2 since you’ll be doing the heel on your Needle 1.
