A long, warm, cozy pair of socks is everyone’s favorite once the fall winds begin to howl and this playfully textured pair in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) is a delicious example. Worked from top cuff to toes, the easy to master knit/purl pattern is framed by a cable along each side. These boot socks work up speedily in a light, lofty sport weight yarn; the sporty, unisex design, flap heel, and multiple sizing make them a great gift pick for any member of the family. This is a project that travels well and is a good choice for less experienced sock knitters.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
