Socks with worsted weight yarn? >>
I'm enjoying using larger needles right now. Anyone know of a pattern that uses ww yarn or a way to make the adjustments?
OTN: Too much stuff that isn't getting finished before something else is started......

Check the free patterns at lion brand. I think they have a sock pattern for a worsted weight yarn.

Here are a couple sock calculators that might help, too.

Mirl56 at Ravelry, too.

IIRC Lion has a pattern for worsted socks on their site (for Lion Wool-ease of course, but I'm sure you could use whatever's close in weight).

Also I just got "Getting Started Knitting Socks" by Ann Budd. It has basic patterns for different gauges from 8 sts/in to I believe 5... so you could pick the one that works with your preferred needle/yarn combo.

"Knit Socks!" by Betsy McCarthy also has some worsted patterns.
