Cakewalk Socks (pay what you want)
These simple socks are a piece of cake to knit – thus the name! They fit snugly thanks to the ribs, and would make a great gift for anyone. The ribbing continues down the back of the heel flap, and there’s no break in the purl ‘gutter’ between the leg and the foot of the sock.
Heel and toe numbers are provided for three different sizes.
M (L, XL), to fit a foot that’s 8.5 (9.25, 10) inches around at widest point. The ribbing is stretchy and quite forgiving, so erring on the small side is all right.
YARN and GAUGE:
Cascade Heritage or any fingering-weight yarn you like, at 36 stitches = four inches/10 cm (9 spi) in stockinette stitch.
five US 1/2.25mm double-point needles or size needed to get gauge, darning needle.
