Toasty Explorer Socks
These are socks are perfect for keeping feet toasty on hiking adventures. Sized for kids and adults, the whole family can have a pair -- no one's feet need be cold again! The stitch pattern is small and easily memorisable so the knitting is fairly mindless and you can choose whichever construction is your favourite. Suitable for beginners sock knitters -- I'm happy to help and put up video tutorials as needed! (Tutorials can be found at http://www.joeliskitchen.com/tutorials/)
Cuff circumference: 5.75 (6.5, 7.25, 8, 8.75)"
This pattern has three options: 1. Top down with a heel flap, worked in one colour. 2. Top down with a short row heel, worked in one or two colours. This short row heel is worked over more than half the stitches to provide a better fit for higher insteps 3. Toe up with a short row heel, worked in one or two colours. This short row heel is worked over half the stitches for a more traditional short row heel fit.
