Suzette, the pattern of your very first socks!
Jump in and knit your first pair of socks thanks to the detailed step by step instructions that you will find in this very easy pattern. Perfect for every beginner, its two-tone version lends itself to play with colours and will elegantly brighten your feet! Plus, once you master the technique, you can adapt the pattern to make it your own. Just add some texture, or a lace stitch, or cables and you will create your design. Or just use a self-striping yarn to add a bit of whimsy without any difficulty! Actually, the Ravelry page of the pattern will provide you with dozens of examples of customized Suzette.
Technically speaking, Julie chose the magic loop technique for this tutorial. Indeed, she finds it the easiest one to begin with. But you can also use DPNs, sock needles or 2 circular. You will just have to adapt the tutorial to put the right number of stitches on each needle.
This pattern is knitted toe-up. This way, you can try your socks on along the way, and use your entire ball of yarn if you want it. Or at least be sure to have enough yarn to knit both socks!
Each step is precisely illustrated with a photo-tutorial, and all the techniques that are used are entirely detailed. This way, you have everything you need to succeed!
