VERY VANILLA SOCKS
This is a very basic sock pattern. It is my ‘go-to’ pattern when I make plain socks.
While the pattern provided is for one size, it is fairly easy to adjust to suit larger or smaller feet.
Just remember to alter the cuff, leg and foot lengths and the gusset increases to suit the person you are making the socks for.

56 sts will fit a medium-large child or a small woman
