Chunky Socks Pattern

200g Alina by Zettl Bulky / 12 ply 100% Wool 
4mm Double Pointed Needles
gauge approx 18sts by 24 rows = 4”

I wear a EU 41 shoe and this was enough yarn  for this pattern. I had a little left over so could have worked an inch longer in the length. Also should mention that these are not designed to be tight.

Cast on 44sts. Work K2, P2 rib for 12 rows or desired length.
K3, P1 to end this sets the pattern. Cont in pattern for 29 rows or desired length.

Heel Flap
Divide sts in half Work on 22sts as follows

WS  Row 1:   *Sl 1 purl to end.*
RS Row 2:  * Sl 1 purlwise, K1 * repeat  to end

Repeat these rows 9 more times, the flap should measure about 2 ½ inches.
