I used a stitch dictionary pattern written in old language for back and forth knitting, and converted it to knit in the round. I have written up a pattern which has been tested many times over by beginning sock knitters and by one master knitter.
The yarn is a favorite of mine. Out of the 100+ pair of socks I have knit from at least 10 different yarns over the last 6 years, including superwash with nylon for "reinforcement," these socks have lasted the longest and have not felted. I wear my hand knit socks every day, and my ArtYarns socks have endured.
Not only that, but the colors are beautiful. I can take orders in the other colors in the last photograph.
