The socks are designed to go both ways. Knit them toe-up or topdown using the same stitch pattern. Knitting top-down will result in chevrons that point down towards the toe as shown, while knitting toe-up will result in chevrons that point up towards the cuff. This is also a stitch pattern that’s easily reversible, so if you’d like to work toe-up with downward-pointing chevrons (or top-down with upward-pointing chevrons), simply flip the charts over and work them upside-down. Ingenious!

Sizes: 8 (10)” foot circumference, 9 1/4” (10 1/4”) from back of heel to tip of toe. To fit women’s shoe sizes U.S. 6 to 8 (8 to 10).
