OK i have done a fair few pairs of magic loop socks (thanks to mitchie's classes :) ) and now want to have ago at dpn socks.

my dads birthdays coming up so i had the idea of a sock scarf and gloves set. he's a builder so is out in all weathers. so i am looking for a bulky weight sock that comes right upto his knee kinda length.

does anyone know of a really simple pattern for me to learn on please?

i have googled it but theer are just so flipping many to choose from that i dont know which would be easy enough to teach myself on

as usual thank you

Well, my first successful dpn socks were knitted out of the Green Mountain Spinnery book. It is very basic, with a stripe and different heel/toe colour, but very, very easy. The directions are great too. Did I mention comfy?
