Reminiscent of the wild vines growing on the fences and barns of my childhood, these rounded toe socks are worked toe-up and 2 at a time using the magic loop method.

They can also be done one at a time, and knit with DPNs or 2 circular needles. Judy’s Magic Cast On is used along with a gusseted short row heel.

Directions are both written and charted.
