Free-Climber Socks - Knitting Pattern PDF

  • $9.00

These gender neutral socks are knit from the bottom up (toe up) and the slanting stitch pattern is created without the use of cables. The toe is shaped using wrap and turn short rows. The heel is a flap-free, gusset heel, similar to the Fleegle heel. 

This pattern is written in needle neutral terms and can be worked on dpns or with the magic loop method on long circular needles.

The stitch pattern has both charted and written instructions.
