    • This is a pdf knitting pattern.

      Choose one color of fingering weight sock yarn and knit the beginner friendly textured sock pattern. The Basketweaver stitch pattern is knit with simple knits and purls with a little yarn over eyelets that make the texture pop. The sole of the sock is knit is smooth stockinette stitch for a comfortable feeling on the bottoms of your feet. These socks are knit top-down, so you can easily customize the length of the leg and foot as you knit. A garter stitch heel flap hugs the heel. Once you make these socks, you will be ready to confidently knit any of my other sock patterns!
