Here is one big sock. Not the most perfect sock...I would definitely need 3 balls for a full pair....but this will do for Dad's first pair of socks.
I will sew in the end once he gives it a try. I am using the leg pattern in Nancy Bush's Folk Socks of the Highland Schottische Kilt Hose.
The cast on is the figure eight cast on. I like the way the increases look at the toe more than a short row toe.
I did do the heel in short rows.
The yarn, Knit Picks Essential, not my favourite. I will choose differently for his next pair.
First, I must complete this pair...here comes another huge sock.
