Smokin’ Sock


Knitting pattern for socks in three sizes with a stitch pattern which curls down the cuff and extends over the top of the foot, and is deceptively easy to work—a simple arrangement of knits and purls yields a deep, cable-like texture. They are easily converted to toe-up construction, as the stitch pattern is vertically reversible.
