This Basic Elements Sock kit includes one skein of Hand Dyed Diva Homegrown Sock yarn perfect for these socks!  Note that for the largest size, depending on desired cuff height, you might need to add a mini to your order just to add on to the top of the cuff (and to create a snazzy accent...)

These socks are knit in the round from the cuff down. They have a traditional flap-and-gusset heel, and a flat toe. They feature ribbing on the leg and the top of the foot, a reinforced slip-stitch heel, and smooth stockinette stitch on the sole.

While this is a great introduction to sock knitting for a beginner, this is also a pattern you can turn to again and again. Once you’re comfortable with the basic construction, use this pattern as a blank canvas for your own creative expression. Use your stash of leftovers to add stripes. Try different stitch patterns or add a cable to the leg. The possibilities are endless.
