Feet come in all sizes and shapes - and so comes this pattern. Socks for Gnomes and Giants are tube socks in 7 sizes, which can easily be adjusted in length for a custom fit.

The spiralling pattern is very stretchy, which ensures that just 7 sizes are needed to fit everyone from newborn to adult large—or gnomes, giants and everyone in between.

The pattern comes with two options for the cuff and two for the toe.

Especially for children, tube socks are perfect because they fit for much longer, but they are great for adults too.

Pattern comes in 7 sizes and has two options for the cuff and toes.
