I knit about 28 pairs of socks a year to give as gifts.... I am unsure of the exact sizes so I have designed a pattern in small , med, large, x-large. This sock is based on the ( in a hushed voice) "Tube sox."
....after all, the colors and leg patterns are what I enjoy most.
I have at one time or another made most of the heels out there..... BUT, for the amount of socks I make....it is the tube sock it the most requested ! They wear a long time, as you will seldom wear them at the same position every time .
I use a kitchner cast on, rib for 1 1/2", work in whatever "leg" pattern that catches my fancy...until the piece meas 8" (from cast on). Then work in stockinet until piece meas 16" (Medium), or 17" (Large). Do a round toe.....Finish sock.... These seem to fit a multitude of sizes. I seldom wear "store bought" sock any more.
