This pattern is also available in Knitworthy 4.
Classic striped socks worked from the toe up with contrast toes and heels. The stripes are worked using the helix method. It's a surprisingly easy to work technique that takes advantage of the fact that knitting in the round is really a spiral to avoid any visible jog when changing colours. The heels are worked using my favourite method—afterthought heels with gusset shaping that seems to fit all foot shapes well. Ten sizes are included from toddler to large men's so you can make them for everyone on your list.
