Easy Toe up socks

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round, pick up stitches along edge.

Pattern Description:

My friend likes to knit on circular needles BUT has issues with toes on socks. Knitting from the toe up means you can use more of your yarn, as you knit the leg until you have used half of it (weigh whats left on the kitchen scales). You can also try them on as you go along. I designed a toe and used a heel she could do on straight needles.

She loved them, found them very easy and suggested I put this online as she has not seen a similar pattern.

Socks should be knitted about a 1/2" smaller than actual foot size to give a snug fit.
