Toe Up? Top Down? Undecided? No matter your sock knitting preference, this pattern is for you. Great for beginners, this basic sock pattern has multiple sizes for everyone on your list and instructions for both knitting from the toe up as well as from the cuff down included. Grab a pretty skein of sock yarn and, as Fleetwood Mac says, you can go your own way.

While this pattern is beginner basic pattern, you should be comfortable with knitting in the round with DPNs, 2 circulars or Magic Loop. Other techniques used are Judy's Magic Cast On, short rows (toe up version) and kitchner stitch (cuff down version). Instructions and links are included in the pattern for these techniques.

Finished Measurements
6 (7, 8, 8.5 9)” foot circumference, customizable foot length and 5.5” leg length

I've made around a dozen pair of socks using this pattern doing the toe up version. the pattern is great and works well, every pair of socks has turned out nicely.

Despite having successfully made socks for 30 years from various patterns, I cannot produce a pair of socks from this pattern.The stitch count on the heel for the toe up sock does not make sense at all. Other parts of the pattern are very clear but not this section. I had to rely on memory and experience. Should have stuck with my standard sock recipe. I lost two days of knitting time trying to work through those intructions.
