This is a really quick project and can make a lovely gift for anytime of the year, but you can also start on your next year’s Xmas gifts right now
For this project I went through a few ideas, and came up with this pattern. I have used our Indian acrylic 4-ply yarn and am very happy with the end product. For a good fit, I suggest that you get a good foot (pencil) imprint of the person you are making this for, along with measurements of Round Ankle (which will not come in the foot print). Using a standard size (Shoe size 6) “may” work, but with handmades, I always prefer more information than less.
Remember that the fit will depend on the stretch of your yarn, as well as the tension with which you work. Looser your tension, looser the fit. Also remember that most yarns stretch with use, so a slightly snug fit is always a good thing.
