Skill Level Easy
These socks can take you anywhere, from the office to hiking. Slipped stitches are easier to knit than they look; add visual interest to simple patterns; and work well with solid, variegated, or self-striping yarns. The pattern instructions are written for a topdown sock, but the stitch pattern is identical whether worked top-down or toe-up.
