8 Amazing Cuff Down Sock Knitting Patterns

Socks are a classic knitting project. They’re very customizable, both the size and the style. There’s a large variety of socks you can make. Cuff down socks are great because you don’t need to learn a new cast on method. If you know the basic long-tail cast on, you can knit these socks. Additionally, some people find heels easier to work when knitting cuff down. Here are 8 amazing cuff down sock knitting patterns.
