Brick & Mortar is worked in the round and the pattern contains written directions as well as charts for the pattern stitch. Directions are for both cuff-down and toe-up. If you feel inclined to make 2 in the same direction, that’s completely acceptable, or one of each if you’re feeling particularly topsy-turvy! Brick & Mortar features 7 sizes; XX-Small, X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large and contains a sock worksheet so you know how to measure your foot to achieve a perfect fit. Brick & Mortar has directions for an afterthought heel, but you may substitute whatever heel you enjoy using.
The pattern is written for the magic loop method for knitting socks, however, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles instead.
