Railyard Socks Fingering Weight Knitting Pattern

This cuff-down sock has been designed in a symmetrical rib pattern. The simple rounds will result in a visually appealing and comfortable sock; a classic style perfect for both men and women. The simplicity of the ribbing also lends itself to a wide variety of dyed sock yarn: everything from solids and tonals, to speckles and variegated, to self striping.
I designed this sock to be an easy-to-knit variation on a basic ribbed sock. The ribbing in this pattern is symmetrical, so both the left and right sock will match perfectly. Depending on the size of the sock, the pattern is slightly different in order to accommodate the number of stitches cast on.
It is easy to adjust both the leg length and the foot length to obtain the perfect fit. I have also included options for a wider heel and/or a larger instep.
This pattern includes adult sizes in small, medium, and large for foot circumferences of 8", 9", and 10" and allowing for about 1" of negative ease for a good fit. It has a ribbed cuff, a slip stitch heel flap and gusset, and a rounded toe. Both the leg length and the foot length can be easily adjusted. You will need approximately 100g of sock yarn for this project.
The ribbed pattern is produced with knit and purl stitches and is easy to memorize. Instructions for the pattern are both written out and charted. It is not written for a specific sock knitting method, but it would be best if the knitter is familiar with sock knitting since not every technique is described in detail. The knitter should be familiar with their preferred needle method (i.e. magic loop, DPNs, 9" circulars, etc.) and should know basic stitches (k2tog, ssk, kitchener). A glossary is included in the pattern.
You may sell finished socks that you have knit with this pattern as long as you credit me as the pattern designer. Please do not make or sell copies of the pattern.
