The above file is for anyone who has never knitted socks before and wants the most detailed instructions you can get. This is what I hand out to my students at the first class. They get a shortened version at the end of class, which is below.
You are free to use these patterns to knit your first socks or to help someone learn how to knit socks, just please give me the credit for the patterns and do not sell them, since they do not belong to you. If you have any questions concerning these patterns, please feel free to email me at basicallybenita at yahoo dot com. Happy knitting!
