Self important Socks

The use of two colours and simple design combine to make a high impact statement for your feet! The socks are knit with a two colour rib cuff and in stocking stitch with a simple stranded motif.

Full instructions are given for Ladies Medium Size but notes are given for Small and Large. Fairisle charts work for all sizes.

I have noticed that a couple of knitters in projects have said the cuff comes out a bit tight with the colour work. In colour work it is important to carry the yarn loosely on the reverse. If you don’t feel confident you could always size up the needles by 0.5mm or 1mm for the cuff.
