Taival is the Finnish word for a journey or a passage from one place to another. For me knitting is more about the journey than about the finished project, and enjoying the moments I spend crafting. These socks are enjoyable and relaxing knitting for more experienced knitters, but also suitable for beginners who want to expand their skills and venture beyond the very basics.

The Taival Socks are knitted cuff down. The socks are started with an optional Tubular Cast On which is explained in detail in the instructions. The Tubular Cast On provides a beautiful and stretchy edge that looks like the stitches roll over the edge to the other side of the sock.

The heels are knitted in a reinforced stitch pattern for durability and the round French heels give the socks a good fit. The pattern includes adjustments for socks with higher insteps.
