I made a ton of these bad boys for people this year.  The pattern is simple, free, and smart looking!

The pattern calls for just one strand but I double the strand and used a 10.5 needle and they fit a man's size 12 foot just right.  I'd made like 5 pair before my husband requested a pair.  Here they are, getting good use.

They look like a good fit!  I think I need to make a pair for my hubby.

Oh thanks!  Another thing if you try this pattern is that I'd put a marker before and after the center 2 K2s, that way you don't have to count the decreases on each row.  I think the next pair I make (I'm finishing up pair #6 now) I'm going to try doing a SSK on one side and a K2 on the other.  I think it'll look better.
