This simple practical sock is designed to show off the attributes of hand painted or space dyed yarns.
It is worked top-down from a crochet Provisional cast-on (details given) which leads into a Tubular edge to give a smooth, elastic, rounded top. The Garter stitch toe and Short-row heel give a snug fit and add durability.
This pattern also appears in my book, "Cool Socks Warm Feet"
