(from Nancy Bush’s pattern description)

These sock and cozy bed socks seem like the perfect example of Victorian luxury. The pattern is an allover openwork rib, even on the bottom of the foot, that yields a very stretchy and comfortable pair of sleeping socks. I have followed the original pattern through the Dutch Heel variation, but I’ve changed the toe ending from a simple bound-off and sewn toe seam to a grafted tip. The original design also calls for an optional crochet edging at the top, which I have omitted. To maintain maximum stretch, I have not blocked these socks.
