Ready, Set, Go Socks - Knitting Pattern PDF
Knit a simply-patterned, gender-neutral, pair of top down socks with three different heel shaping options. The flap and gusset heel is a good fit for adults with an average instep. The gusset heel is a good fit for adults with a higher instep. The short row heel is a good fit for adults with a lower instep.
This sock has a rounded wedge toe and is finished with grafting.
This pattern is written in needle neutral terms and can be worked on dpns or circular needles with your favorite small circumference circular knitting method.
If you prefer to knit socks from the toe up, don't miss the toe-up version of the Ready, Set, Go Socks.
