This is my first pair of socks ever! I loved the project. The soles and the toes are in (knit, sl sts) pattern to create thicker fabric. The rest of the sock is st. sts. Cuff is 1x1 ribbing.
Top down sock. Casted on US 0 66 sts and then increased to 72 sts for the widest part of calf and switched to US 1. Then gradually decreased to 48 st for the ankles.
Sewed on hand made bees on the back of the sock for fun look. :)
