Sock Query
My friend has asked me to knit her a pair of socks. Only problem is, not having knit any before I'm not sure how to go on.

She want knee high socks to go under her boots. I've got some DK yarn but the easy patterns I've found are only short ones.

Do I just lengthen the leg length or should I put some shaping in?
Shaping seems to be the answer or they may be tight round the top.

Help please!!

the main question is how much shaping is in her leg? I have a 10 inch ankle and a 18 inch calf, shaping is needed.

Not really sure, haven't measured yet but she is quite slim

9 in ankle and 14 in calf
