Basic Socks Pattern
This sock pattern is perfect for those knitters who want to learn how to make socks and don't know where to start. It's the pattern I used to make my first pair of socks ever and it inspired me to start the #lamercerieyearofsocks. It explains sock construction, so that you can continue to build on the pattern and customize it for a perfect fit. The pattern also includes instructions for both fingering and DK weight versions, along with sizing information, so you can make handknit socks for everyone in your life!
