This is a pattern for adult socks worked in the round  from the cuff down. The German band heel is shaped using increases and decreases and the toe is grafted together using the Kitchener method. We used DK yarn for a quick knit!

This is an ideal pattern for sock first timers as it is worked in DK yarn and has all the advantages of sock gussets and heels but not the picking up of stitches.

What type of needles do I need to make these DK socks? 

You can use DPN (double pointed needles) or circular needles.
