White Hart - PDF Knitting Pattern
Toe-up hand knit socks featuring a Fleegle heel and a traveling stitches pattern on the front of the sock.
Inspired by the White Stag of Arthurian legends, also known as the White Hart, the traveling stitches in this sock make me think of antlers, perhaps those worn by the White Stag himself!

These socks are worked from the toe-up, using the Magic Loop method, beginning with Judy’s Magic Cast On technique. These socks also feature an anatomical toe shape, a Fleegle Heel (no pick ups!) and are bound off using Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off. Written instructions or links to tutorials are provided for each technique.
These socks are mirrors of one another; the pattern section varies in size based on the size of sock being knit. Be diligent in following sizing to ensure you are using the instructions/chart for the size of sock being knit. Each chart and written set of instructions indicates size.
Instructions are provided for the smallest size, with larger sizes in parentheses. When only 1 set of instructions is provided, it applies to all sizes.
Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
