I LOVE this pattern! (and all her other patterns) This pattern is awesome for beginners. I’ve got a lot of experience with knitting socks, but if you’re looking to knit your first pair, this is the pattern for you!

Thank you! Beginning sock knitter and these instructions make sense as I read them over. Will see how first socks turn out! Love that you include multiple sizes as my size 10.5 are quick to wear out the toes of standard sized women’s socks (and mens socks aren’t in all the fun colors!)

I had been looking for a retro striped sock pattern. These instructions are very detailed and well written.
