This top-down sock in four sizes (S/M/L/XL) features the deep ribbing and horizontal knit/purl motifs of a classic gansey sweater. A simple rib extends down the leg and over the top of the foot to complete the design. Simple-to-work motifs make it a good traveler that is readily converted to toe-up construction. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
