These are straightforward, classic men’s socks, worked from the top down with a reinforced heel flap, a band heel, and a deep gusset for best fit. In multiple sizes for all the men you love unconditionally. The pattern is written generally, for dpns, magic loop or two circulars—however you wish to work.

Finished foot circumference: 8 (8½, 9, 9¾, 10¼)” / 20.5 (21.5, 23, 25, 26)cm
Finished leg length: 7½” / 19cm; adjustable
