This sock knitting pattern will have you seeing double (in a good way). These lightly lacy, fraternal, ankle socks are knit with two colors of yarn. Worked from the toe-up, with wide stripes, a rounded wedge toe and gusset and flap heel.
The pattern is written in needle neutral terms and can be worked on dpns or circular needles with your favorite small circumference circular knitting method. However, the supplemental video tutorials demonstrate how to knit the socks two-at-a-time on two circular needles.
And, two cakes of yarn is enough to knit 2, possibly 3, pairs of socks.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
