I have a long love affair with self-striping yarns, but have the problem that the heels that fit me best disrupt the striping on the socks.

This pattern is for a basic sock, in a large range of sizes, and both toe-up and cuff-down. The pattern includes the OMG heel: One-needle Mock Gusset for toe-up or One-needle Mini Gusset for cuff-down. This heel does not disrupt the striping on the top of the foot because the gusset increases/decreases and turning of the heel is all on the bottom of the foot.

OMG heel mimics a gusset heel, but is a short-row heel. As such, the heel has a snugger fit like a short-row heel.
