Briggs & Little's Heavy Sock Pattern

Adult Size 10:


Needles: 1 set double pointed 3.25 mm (American size 3)

Tension, to be measured on 3.25 needles in stocking stitch: 12 sts and 16 rows = 2 inches (5 cm). If you do not obtain the correct tension, use larger or smaller needles as indicated.

Check your tension. A careful check to your tension is the only assurance you have of a proper size for the finished garment. Your test piece should be large enough so it can be laid out without being stretched or compressed by the needles.
