Strie Socks, Toe Up
Strie means “stripe,” “groove,” or “gore” in French, so it seems like the perfect name for these very simple, garter-stitch-ribbed socks with French heels and wedge toes. This version is worked from the toe up.
Simple stitch pattern shows off your knitting mojo without driving you nuts.
Toe-up shaping takes the some of the most common shaping methods in socks and turns them upside down.
No stitches to pick up, just simple increases and decreases turn the heel and close the heel flap.
