Vintage Silver Socks - PDF Knitting Pattern
Top-down hand knit socks with an all over ribbed/slipped stitch motif!
Playing off the stitch pattern in the Vintage Silver Shrug, these socks are cuff-less (unless you want a proper ribbed cuff) and easy to memorize! The stitch pattern carries into the heel for an all-over motif!
