Are you in need of a soothing project to take you away from the stresses of everyday? 

Whether you’re just starting out on your sock knitting journey or a seasoned pro with lots of scraps to use, you're in the right place!

You get to choose your knitting experience, from picking your favourite sock yarn, making your favourite drink and sitting in your favourite spot, we all deserve to take some time out from our busy days and create time that's just for us, to escape, even if only for a little while.

You can also choose how you like to knit your socks, with instructions for knitting toe-up or cuff-down. So what makes this pattern different from the first Keep It Simple pattern I hear you cry? Rather than walking you through how to insert and afterthought heel, this second edition guides you through adding a traditional heel flap and gusset to help you shape your socks for the perfect fit. 

You can find tutorials for all techniques used in this pattern, as well as information on yarn substitution on my website.

This pattern also includes a large print version for those with additional needs. This includes full written instructions with no reliance on charts, text is black, in Arial, font size 24 and is formatted to be read more easily with a screen reader.
