Easy to follow pattern Review by PurpleJ3nn

I purchased this pattern to make my first socks, for my boyfriend.
I needed them to be an inch bigger than what the pattern gave count for, but I found it easy to adjust & calculate for the extra inch.
The pattern is very well written and I found it easy to follow.
I believe if someone needed the socks to be just a bit wider, it would be an easy adjustment as well, so this would be an ideal sock for someone with wide feet. Some comments I read on ravelry indicated that the sock has a lot of stretch, therefore ended up being bigger than expected, so for an 11" foot, I have made the sock 10.5"; hoping this will work in my favor.
