Ribbed Hiker Socks

I am delighted with the Ribbed Hiker socks! I used Trekking XXL yarn and it was quite a dream. The leg is created using FPdc and BPdc. It's snug, yet stretchy. The foot uses a split single crochet and results in full coverage. I've made socks with an extended single crochet and a hdc. Sometimes, I can feel those stitches on the bottom of my feet.

One ball of Trekking XXL is 420 yards. I had to go into a second ball for this pair of socks; I think the FPdc/BPdc used more yarn than other types of stitches.
