Modifications: None.

Notes: I may not be the fastest sock knitter in the world, but I get there eventually!

This was a well-written pattern and the fit is great.

I found two small errors, one in the heel instructions and one in the ribbing.ย  For the largest size, the heel turn sould read K33 not K35 and in the ribbing, if you don’t decrease or increase two stitches before starting the ribbing, you end up with 4 knit stitches at the start/end of round.

If I ever need a basic sock pattern, I think this is one I would gravitate towards automatically now.

  1. I like the simple stocking stitch socks too, they show up the colours in the wool so well. I have two lots of self striping kind of wool and I shall make very boring plain socks too!!
