Sweet Pea Socks

$5.00

These socks are worked in the round from the top down. The pattern calls for double-pointed needles (DPNs), but you may choose whichever method of working in the round on a small circumference that you prefer.

The pattern is written and charted for two sizes, Chart A is a 6” (15.5 cm) leg circumference and Chart B is 7” (18 cm) leg circumference; use the correct chart for whichever size you are knitting. The ribbing pattern is very accommodating and stretchy.

Charts are read from the bottom up and all rounds are read from right to left.
