Learning Sock Pattern

This is the pattern that I wrote for the Beginning Sock Knitting class that I teach at my LYS. I always learn something from my students. During my last session, one of my students indicated that she was a visual learner, thus this pattern has pictures as a visual aid. As a "learning" project, needle size is not limited to the US4 listed in the pattern, but to the comfort of the individual knitter. Gauge is not important in this project.

This sock was designed to teach the baics of sock knitting. It is not intended to fit anyone. However, depending on the needle size you use, it could fit a toddler.
