I want to make my mom some socks for Mother's Day but need a pattern.<br><br>
I'm looking for something top down with a short row or after thought heel if I can find it.<br><br>
And also free <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
The Sockotta has suggested #2 needles.<br><br>
Please help me find something or I'll have to make it up and it won't be as pretty!

Hey there, I just finished a pair using this yarn & really like them. But, at the heel I switched to size ones and finished the foot with them.<br><br>
The yarn is nice, but it stretches out quickly so the ones seemed to fit better.<br><br>
Have fun knitting!

If you're still trying to decide, I highly recommend the RPM pattern - it goes really fast, and I get TONS of compliments every time I wear them!
