This pattern is a simple top-down sock with a straightforward stitch pattern on the leg and top of the foot. The heel is knit with two colors. The instructions are written for one size only (medium).
I realize that in this day and age I should have provided more sizes, but the pattern on the leg has a 16 stitch repeat, making it hard to grade. Dezasseis means sixteen in Portuguese, as a reminder not to make the same mistake twice.
You might be able to achieve a bigger size with sport weight yarn and bigger needles, but the pattern is written for 64sts on 2.25mm needles and fingering weight yarn only.
This pattern is written without specifying the type of needles to be used, so you can you use whichever technique you prefer.
- At least 75g/380yds of fingering yarn.
- 10g/50yds of fingering yarn in contrasting color.
