Socks are knit in one piece from cuff to toe.

Socks may be worked on either 3 dpns (knitting with a 4th) or 4 dpns (knitting with

a 5th).

When instructed to slip sts, slip them purlwise, except when working SSK (see

Special Stitches)

Special Stitches:

SSK (slip slip knit): slip 2 sts from left needle, one at a time knitwise, then insert

tip of left needle through front of these 2 sts from left to right and knit them

together from this position.

K2tog (knit two together): knit two stitches together as one (decrease completed)

P2tog (purl two together): purl two stitches together as one (decrease completed)
