Basic Sock with a Double Gusset Heel by Cristi H. Payne

Basic Sock with a Double Gusset Heel

This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

This basic sock pattern includes a chart with cast-on numbers for a wide range of sizes and gauges. It is written for the experienced sock knitter, not a beginner. The unique part of this pattern is the double gusset heel, a technique I developed several years ago. It results in a heel that hugs the foot and creates arch shaping for the most comfortable sock you’ll ever make. Pattern includes instructions for where to skip ahead if inserting this heel technique into another sock pattern. Please link to this pattern if you do this!

This is a cuff down pattern. I reverse engineered this from Cat Bordhi’s toe-up Riverbed Sockitecture, then honed it for the double gusset. If you want a toe-up version, you can find one here:
