2 skeins Patons Classic Wool (find it here)
1 skein Lion Brand Homespun (find it here)
Crochet Hook 5.00 (H) and 8.00 (L)
Needle
Stitch markers
Gauge: 4″ x 4″ = 15 dc x 8 rows.
Size: 7-9 US women’s shoe size.
Special Notes: Sock fits feet from a narrower size 7 foot, to a wider foot that still wears some
normal width size 9.  Sock can easily be adjusted to fit wider or narrower widths by adding
or decreasing one chain at beginning, and adding or decreasing 2 stitches to each round.
With Homespun yarn knot beginning and end of tail to prevent unraveling.
