Original specifies 2 ounces white merino, Shetland, or 2-ply fingering wool; four steel #16 (U.S. 0000; 1.25 mm) needles.
While this sock was originally designed for a child, larger needles and thicker yarn than called for in Weldon's makes it stylish for women. Knit it on even larger nee dles for a man. The pattern is a collection of knit and purl patterns, almost a sampler of stitches. This sock has a French Heel and Flat Toe.
