This pattern was born after a discussion with another Raveler about how hard she was finding it to find a simple, toe-up sock pattern for worsted-weight yarn. She wanted to share it with her Church group for charity knitting.

Available in 6 sizes to fit the whole family, the socks begin with a provisional cast-on, followed by a short-row toe, short-row heel, and simple 1/1 ribbed top cuff. There is no fiddly cast-on with small numbers of stitches, no grafting, and no sewing - just two little ends to darn in when done.

The Adult Large size will require 2 balls of yarn, the Adult Medium MAY require a second ball, depending on the length of foot, and all others may be made with just one ball or a part ball.

This pattern may be used to make items for charity, craft sales, or whatever else you wish, but PLEASE, don’t sell or distribute the actual pattern.
