Boot Socks

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Superwash Merino - Sock-EaseTM

GAUGE:

20 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the round (k every rnd) with 1 strand each of A and C held tog. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Boot Socks Reviewed by MELVA REID on 2011-01-11 ***
RE: errors...the toe decrease is not correct. They should be techniques opposite to each other so they will slant to the right or to the left to fit the contour of the foot.
