Balance Knit Sock Pattern
These socks balance ease and interesting knitting with a classic twist on ribbed socks that goes well with all the fun multicolored and handpaint sock yarns available today. To make the socks even more balanced the direction of twist is different for each sock of the pair so you can walk around in perfect reflection symmetry.
This pattern contains 5 sizes from toddler through large adult sized socks and the ribbed features make the sizing forgiving so you can make a pair for everyone on your gift giving list!
As an added bonus, also included is a nifty, full-color sock wrapper that may be customized after printing to special package the socks for gift giving.

The pattern is written for knitting on a set of 5 DPNs, but could be adjusted to either the 2 Circulars or Magic Loop techniques for those already familiar with those techniques.
