These socks are knit all out of order - they’re all scrambled up!
Instead of starting from one direction or another, the entirety of both feet and both legs are knit first, then both cuffs, toes, and heels are added!
The nature of this pattern makes it an excellent mindless project or travel project - you can knit the entire foot and leg tube without having to count stitches, turn heels, or graft toes!
This pattern includes a recipe to help you calculate sock length - whether you want an ankle sock or a mid calf length sock, all the details are included (and don’t worry, i’ve done the majority of the math for you. You just do a simple A-B type equation, and you’re off to the races!)
Video tutorials are included to help you work a crocheted provisional cast on and to separate the tube into two sock legs. A photo tutorial explains how to cut and knit the afterthought heel.
This pattern has been professionally tech edited for clarity and accuracy.
