X-Small (Small, Medium, Large, X-Large)
The socks are designed to be slightly tight, about 0.5-2.5 cm smaller than the foot they are supposed to fit. The socks fit feet with a circumference around the foot of 14-16, (15-17, 17.5-19.5, 19.5-21.5, 21.5-23.5) cm. The length of the socks is adjustable.
The size is chosen according to the circumference of the foot rather than length because the length of the sock is customizable. Work the socks about 2.5 cm shorter than the length of the foot.

38 sts and 48 rows = 10×10 cm in stockinette stitch in the round.
The knitting firmness was achieved with 2.25mm needles, but I knit hard so you may need to
choose one size smaller knitting needles to achieve knitting strength.

The yarn should consist of 75% wool / 25% nylon and have a stretch of 400-425 m/100g.
Yarn consumption 270 (300, 330, 360, 390) m
Keep in mind that the amount of yarn used may change depending on how long the foot of the sock is knitted.

Choosing the type of knitting needles
The socks can be worked on different types of knitting needles. If it is knitted from the toe, the layout is
usually easiest to make with longer circular knitting needles, but it works well with double pointed needles.
It also works great to use a short, 23 cm circular needle. It’s just the toe and
heel, which is most easily worked on double pointed needles or with the Magic Loop.
