Perfect fitting knee high socks are like magic! This is my favorite vanilla sock pattern that I use for all of my toe-up socks. The pattern includes many different options for you to get the best fit including a Wedge Toe, Round Toe, Afterthought Heel, and Gusset Heel. Calf shaping instructions to make sure the leg doesn’t fall down. Brew up some magical socks!
