Notes

Heavily modified.
Held fingering weight doubled for sport-weight yarn.
Used size 6 needle.
Knit a rubbed cuff for 5”.
Started with a medium (60 stitches) and decreased to a small (40 stitches).
I am super surprised that these socks didn’t use more yarn, not complaining though!

And the best part is she wore them home! Yay. I love a successful present.

Originally favorited February, 2009!
