Janis, who are the socks for? Below I have listed some resources based on adult size socks. I used Yarn Harlots recipe BUT only because I was completely frustrated with trying to understand a pattern. (I dread patterns, so I won't share any
). Anyway, this recipe is not available online, it's in the book Knitting Rules by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. But there are some basic sock making resources
Here is a nice tutorial for beginers, with pictures
Maybe someone here can share a favourite free pattern?
