This pattern is in English.
The Penny Socks are worked top down, from the cuff to the toe. The socks are worked in ribbing (k1, p1) on the leg and instep and stockinette stitch on the heel and sole of the foot.
The Penny Socks are worked with the same number of stitches in the cuff for sizes 35-40 [US5-9]. The biggest sizes (41-44 [US9½-12]) have more stitches in the cuff. If you have a large foot (for example size 44 [US12]), but a narrow calf and a narrow foot you can choose to knit size 39/40 [US8/9] and extend the foot to the length of size 42-43 [US11-12]. If you have a small foot (for example size 36 [US6]), but a wide calf and a wide foot, you can choose to knit size 41-42 [US9½-10½] and shorten the foot to the length for size 35-36 [US5-6].
