This top-down sock in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) is one step away from a basic plain vanilla construction and universally appealing for men, women, and kids of all ages. Work in two colors to emphasize its vintage vibe or stick with one color for sleek simplicity. Whichever way you decide to work it, this project travels well and is an excellent choice for beginning sock knitters. This pattern calls for sport weight yarn, but may be worked in fingering yarn on smaller needles, using instructions for the next size up.
