216 Beginners Lightweight Sock (Cuff Down) WEB EXCLUSIVE
"A plain basic sock," says Soucy, "written for beginning sock knitters. Knitted from the top to toe, with a bit of rib at the top and a plain heel. Uses fingering weight yarn and a set of 4 double point needles. Many beginning knitters can knit these socks with no help. Sized for men and women." Soucy eschews grafting for these, which will perhaps delight the sock newbie-- the toes are decreased in standard wedge fashion and then the stitches are just gathered together. She provides a valuable illustrated tip to find your best personal sock length, too.
