NOTES

The Socks are worked from the toes up. The Foot sec­tion is worked in a con­tin­u­ous spi­ral, leav­ing a space for the Heel which is added af­ter­wards. When chang­ing colours for the Leg sec­tion, carry the un­used yarns across the back of the work, change colour in the last yrh of the pre­vi­ous st, and twist the ends to­gether to avoid holes in the fab­ric.
