My Grandmother was born Donna Frances Hightower in 1918. She was a woman of many talents, much wisdom, and lots of love. These socks are named for her. The pattern reminds me of the many long walks we would take, up and around the small hill by her house, on a quiet country road surrounded by tall pines and farmland.

One size fits most women’s feet - this sock is nice and stretchy. Length is easily customizable. Approximate circumference after blocking: at cuff, unstretched: 6.5”/16.5 cm at mid-foot, unstretched: 7.5”/19 cm
Intermediate (grafting, knitting in the round, lace)
This cuff-down sock should stretch to comfortably fit the circumference of most women’s feet. Lengthen or shorten the foot for a perfect fit. Yardage is based on roughly a 9" total foot length - significantly adapting cuff or foot length will use more or less yarn.
