Yarn: Regia Mini RingelPattern: My own, using the Band Heel instructions on 60 stitches.
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns
Comments: These were made to wear with the cuff up or down. Even though they are a gift. Because I like them that way. I think they are more versatile. And, again, because I like them that way.
Notice the heel. It's the Band Heel. You'll find the instructions on this page, and you will need to be able to open a spreadsheet. No gussets on these socks! Once you've made the heel (it's easy, and you can even choose how many stitches you want on your needles) you pick up stitches and knit down the foot.
