998 Men's Heavy Weight Boot Sock (Cuff Down) WEB EXCLUSIVE
"A fast to knit sock for men, great for work or play," says Soucy. "But beware-- once you knit him one pair, he won't want to wear store bought socks anymore, and you will have to make a dozen pair! Uses heavy worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 20 sts to 4 inches." She is absolutely right about the requests; you know how easily men spoil themselves (perhaps especially at your expense). Luckily these really do work up quickly, and there are many gorgeous yarns to choose from that fit this sock's bill. No grafting, either; after performing a standard wedge toe, stitches are just gathered professionally together.
