One size fits doesn't work. This pattern does!
It’s written for a wide variety of yarn weights. Instructions are given for working at 4 different gauges and 8 different sizes. The combination means you are almost certain to find a size that will work for you or anyone you knit for.
And just in case that isn’t enough, there are also 2 variations of the top of the foot (a slightly more sedate rib & a rather more energetic swoop). Knit it in a nice quiet color & make the plain top, & it will pass muster with even the most conservative of sock wearers. Break out a wild yarn & make the swoopy top, & it will please the more adventurous folks out there.
And of course the stitch pattern is addictive (and fast) & the resulting sock beautiful.
Samples are shown in Caper Aran in the color Melon (yellow) and Caper Sock in the color Beach Plum (blue), both by String Theory. A suggested substitute is shown below.
