The pattern is in PDF format.

A tabi/thong/split-toe sock which is knit from the toes up. It features a heel flap for fit and comfort, and has the stretchiest bind-off ever…Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind off. The yardage required can be as little as 50 grams/220 yards, depending on how tall the leg portion is - photos 2 through 7 each used about 50 grams of yarn. The top photo used more.

There are photos and diagrams to help you achieve a good fit, and the size can be adjusted down or up by the use of smaller or larger needles, or finer- or heavier-weight yarn, and the length of the both the leg and the foot can be knit to suit your individual needs.

Because this is a ‘vanilla’ sock pattern, it is easy to personalise your socks with your own touches, such as a cable, lace or other stitch pattern to the top of the sock, and of course, to the leg.
