The Top Down Sock Recipe
Free from Abundant Yarn Online
For years, we used this sock pattern in all our classes. The instructions fit any size yarn, any size needle and any size foot, so whether you are knitting dainty summer socks for a little girl, great big hiking socks for a size 15 foot, or fuzzy, warm house socks for Grandma, this pattern will work. The pattern includes directions for 4 double points, 5 double points and two circulars.
100g yarn, any weight (for child's size; 50-100g, for Men's large, 150-200g)
Needles that will give you a fairly dense gauge (0-2 for fingering yarn, 3-4 for DK, 5-7 for worsted, etc.); double points or circulars
