Sock Science Too
Sock Science Too offers 2 styles of sock: Summer Sockies begin with a garter stitch ankle (which can be striped) with striping ideas for the heel and foot; Mock Cable Socks are worked in a solid colour. They have a longer leg with a textured pattern that can also continue down the top of the foot.
Both sock styles use the same garter stitch short row heel. Included is a checklist with stitch counts for each row of the heel. The chart makes it easy to knit the heel to suit your instep. If you have a high instep, like me, you may want to start your heel with 70% of your sock stitches, rather than the more standard 50%.
Try substituting this heel in your favourite sock pattern - it works great in vanilla socks, too! And there is now a Sock Monkey Work Socks pattern that uses the heel from Sock Science Too - it’s a free, but separate, download on Ravelry
I hope you enjoy this 7-page pattern! (9 pages if you count the Sock Monkey Work Socks pattern!!!)
