Frances Socks

The Yarnbrary

My second daughter, Frances, is a girl who knows exactly what she wants in life.  And what she wants is fun without fuss and dreams without drama.

You know what you want in a sock and it’s pretty much the same thing. This pattern has a simple texture stitch to make your favorite yarn shine and an excellent fit. It’s worked top-down with a heel flap, turn, and gusset and an easy, smooth toe. No fuss or drama here.
