Maximix Knee Socks are designed to combat the cold. Knit from the toe up to allow for maximum use of available yarn, these socks feature a wedge toe, a stranded sunburst pattern on the instep, and a short-row heel. A bit of corrugated ribbing starts the leg that uses a heavier-weight yarn to make the knitting quicker and the socks warmer. It all ends with a contrasting rolled cuff that may hold a bit elastic--because we all need a little help staying up sometimes.

This pattern is written for dpns. It is a relatively short pattern that was intended as a framework for experienced sock knitters.
