FREE ROW CHECKER
Checks and ribs have been paired up to create a pair of socks that can run rings around the typical store-bought variety. This pattern’s checkered panels, a simple combination of stockinette and purl stitches, could turn any guy into a fan of hand-knitted socks. Especially since our design was written for a durable cotton blend with silk and nylon that is also nice and comfy.
Pattern and Row Checker
This pattern is nicely printed on card stock in a handy pocket size. A list of all abbreviations and glossary of terms are included. It also comes with my unique Row Checker. A tool you can use to help keep track of your stitch count, row number, increases, and decreases. Throughout the pattern you’ll find indicators of when to refer to your Row Checker.

The kit for these socks, complete with pattern and yarn, comes in a backpack-style project bag. On the front of the backpack is a zippered pouch with a porthole. You can insert the ball of yarn from which you’re knitting and run the yarn through the porthole, so if you like, you can even knit while walking down the street.
Note: needles and handsome guy not included.
