Worked in the round, Irish Whiskey contains written directions and a chart for the pattern stitch. Instructions are for both cuff-down and toe-up. If you feel inclined to make 2 in the same direction, that’s completely acceptable, or one of each if you’re feeling particularly topsy-turvy! Irish Whiskey features 7 sizes. You’ll also find a sock worksheet, so you know how to measure your foot to achieve a perfect fit. Irish Whiskey has directions for an afterthought heel, but you may substitute whatever heel you enjoy using.
The pattern is written for the magic loop method for knitting socks; however, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double-pointed needles instead.
