This is the double knit version of our Simply the Simplest Sock pattern. Double knit socks are just perfect when you need a pair in a hurry or for when you are setting out! This cuff down, heel-flap sock pattern has been written with new-to-sock knitters and more experienced sock knitters a like. The pattern is structured for distribution on 4 double pointed needles and knitting with the 5th needle but can be knit on your preferred sock needles. The socks photographed in the pattern have been knit using Coop Knits Socks Yeah DK but other DK yarns (including Banshee Yarns Platinum Sock DK) can be used.
