You knit the garter stitch top band first, then pick up stitches along one edge of that band and knit down the leg. The heel is a garter stitch short row heel which I had never made before. The toe is cleverly designed to decrease gradually in pattern.
As you can see, it fits perfectly. I made the 66 stitch size and used 2.0mm needles for the garter sections and 2.25mm for the rest. Now I need to get busy and make the second one. I usually don’t have “second sock syndrome” so I expect to get the second one finished in good time. I really recommend these socks if you are looking for a fun, quick and interesting knit. Thanks Lucy!
By the way, it’s just now 4:30pm here in Haarlem and it’s already dusk. DUSK! Car headlights are required. Streetlights coming on any second now. Ugh! The dark days are falling fast and hard!
