Ballad of the Tenderfoot
Have you always wanted to knit socks but been a little scared of the process? Then these are the socks for you.
This pattern is written for a knitter who wants to venture out into sock knitting, just to see what all the fuss is about. The socks are worked in a DK weight, to help you get to grips with how a sock works, but in a yarn that is thick enough to hold interest and work up quickly. Plus it makes for snuggly warm socks.
A garter band down each side of the sock front will help to remind you which part you are working on while also stopping the sock from becoming boring. The pattern comes with two videos, one for magic loop, and one for DPNs, so you can decide your own preferred method. Everything is written out from start to finish with explanations of each section.
This pattern is ideal to get you up and running in the world of socks.
