Daylong Socks, Both Ways
Here’s the combined version of the socks with princess feet--the bottom of the heel, the sole of the foot, and the toe are all in reverse stockinette stitch. The smooth knit side of the stockinette faces inside against the sole of the foot for a more comfortable sock. The trick is that the foot is knit inside out. No additional purling is needed.
This version includes instructions for cuff-down socks with a heel flap and gusset and toe-up socks with a boomerang short-row heel. The leg and instep are ribbed for a stretchy, comfy fit.
The simplicity of the pattern makes this an easy knit and allows these instructions to be used to reverse the foot of almost any sock pattern. Use Daylong Socks as a blueprint to improve the comfort of your next socks.
Both the cuff down version and the toe-up version are available separately.
